• New Scholars award goes to Baylor prof for 2nd straight year

    Baylor’s reputation as a university with faculty recognized as leaders in their discipline received a nice boost this week as, for the second year in a row, a Baylor professor took home the New Scholars Achievement Award from the Conference of Southern Graduate Schools (CSGS).

    The CSGS, which includes all major graduate schools in 17 states and the District of Columbia, gave its 2008 Achievement Award for New Scholars in Math, Physical Sciences and Engineering to Dr. Ian Gravagne, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at Baylor. Last year, English professor Dr. Richard Russell received the New Scholars award in the humanities.

    Gravagne is not only a prolific researcher, but also an involved teacher leading one of three Engaged Learning Groups (ELGs) currently on campus.

    Sic ’em, Dr. Gravagne!
