ECE Professor Romel Gomez was one of three Clark School faculty selected to join Keystone: the Clark School Academy of Distinguished Professors. Gomez, Cheryl Ehrman (chemical and biomolecular engineering) and Jim Duncan (mechanical engineering) constitute the 2007 class of newly selected Keystone faculty.

Now in its second year, the Keystone program fosters exemplary undergraduate teaching skills and commitment to excellence in fundamental engineering courses. Keystone aims to help improve student retention and graduation rates by ensuring students the best learning experiences in the early, formative stages.

"Keystone will help to attract more students to the Clark School, enhance the school’s academic reputation, and produce alumni and alumnae who have a stronger connection to the school because of the great teachers they found here," said Dean Nariman Farvardin in a college-wide announcement.

Keystone professors make a commitment to the improvement of education in fundamental engineering courses. The program is a renewable three-year appointment that includes a base salary increase, discretionary funds to support the recipient’s activities and additional support personnel.

Last year, ECE faculty Bruce Jacob and Wes Lawson were selected to participate in the Keystone program.
