Mike Polito, assistant professor in Oceanography and Coastal Sciences (DOCS), received the LSUAA Rising Faculty Research Award. Additionally, Vince Wilson, director of CC&E’s Undergraduate Programs and professor in Environmental Sciences, and Giulio Mariotti, assistant professor in DOCS, received Tiger Athletic Foundation Undergraduate Teaching Awards.

The LSUAA Rising Faculty Research Award recognizes faculty at the rank of assistant professor who have outstanding records of scholarship and published research, and the Tiger Athletic Foundation Undergraduate Teaching Award selects outstanding undergraduate teachers within their respective colleges.

CC&E appreciates their dedication to our students and rigorous, academic research. Their commitment to education is helping to create the next generation of environmental scientists, stewards, and professionals.
