Justin Henriques Receives Kern Rising Star Award


Justin Henriques, associate professor of engineering, has earned a Rising Star award from the Kern Entrepreneurial Engineering Network, a national network of faculty who teach engineering to undergraduates.

In announcing the award, which includes $10,000, a KEEN committee stated it was impressed by Henriques’ record of achievement in creating and promoting entrepreneurially minded learning. "It was clear that the entrepreneurial mindset drives you in your work as an educator," the committee stated. "You have included EM in everything you do, from your course development work to the creation of new programs, like the Creative Fellows. The committee was also impressed by the work you have done to disseminate your EM work through both the network and more broadly through presentations and publications. We believe that the tools you have developed for assessment, continuous improvement and sustainability of co-curricular programs are models for other faculty engaged in the network."
