Chairman's Exemplary Faculty Prize: Elke Rundensteiner
The Computer Science Department is very pleased and proud to announce that Professor Elke A. Rundensteiner has been awarded the 2010 Chairman's Exemplary Faculty Prize. The prize, of $10,000, was awarded at the 142nd Commencement exercises on Saturday, May 15.
The Chairman's Exemplary Faculty Prize was established in 2007 through the personal philanthropy of Donald K. Peterson '71, chair of the WPI Board of Trustees. It recognizes faculty members who, "as true exemplars of the university's highest aspirations and most important qualities, excel in all relevant areas of faculty performance".
Prof. Rundensteiner was cited for her outstanding research, high quality teaching---including many PhD students---and her service to faculty governance. In 2007 she was the recipient of the Board of Trustees' Award for Outstanding Research & Creative Scholarship.
