John Chen Receives Distinguished Teaching Award

Teacher and students

Mechanical Engineering Professor John Chen was one of two Cal Poly professors to receive the Distinguished Teaching Award.

The Distinguished Teaching Award was established to recognize faculty members who demonstrate excellence in teaching at Cal Poly.  Given the mission of the University, this prestigious award represents an enormous honor to those selected to receive it.  

The award is especially significant since only students and alumni – those who have been touched by the faculty – are eligible to submit nominations.

The rigorous evaluation process is conducted by peer faculty members and is based on reviews of written documentation and extensive in-class visitations.  

John will be recognized during Fall Convocation on September 12.

The Cal Poly College of Engineering understands there has been an enormous amount of turmoil and transition due to Coronavirus (COVID-19). As we continue offering support to our students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends, we also continue providing critical updates as well as college highlights. Ours is a college full of creative and bright engineers and staff. For more information on COVID-19 visit the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.
