Hardly a year goes by when members of the Department and affiliated Graduate Program don’t win awards for their contributions, and this year keeps the winning streak alive. Professor Jason Grabosky, the John and Eleanor Kuser Faculty Scholar in Urban and Community Forestry, has been recognized by the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences (SEBS) with the 2017 Teaching Excellence Award. Jason was recognized for his enthusiastic, creative, innovative, engaging, and tireless teaching. Outside the Department, he currently heads and teaches in SEBS General Honors Program. He recently led the development of the new Center for Resilient Landscapes, a collaborative initiative involving SEBS, New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station, and the US Forest Service, which helps to match students with state and federal career opportunities in urban and rural natural resource stewardship. Jason takes great pride in making a difference in students’ lives, and for that he is duly awarded. Congratulations, Jason! Well-deserved!
