The Environmental Studies Department's current Chair, Andrew Szasz, was selected as the recipient of the 2014 Environmental Sociology Teaching and Mentorship Award from the Environment & Technology Section of the American Sociological Association (ASA) at the annual meeting held this past August in San Francisco.

The ASA's Environment & Technology Section is the nation's most prominent association for Environmental Sociologists.  The Section has over 500 members, both faculty and graduate students.

The biannual Teaching and Mentorship Award honors faculty members who have provided especially dedicated service to the teaching of environmental sociology and the mentorship of students at the undergraduate and/or graduate level.

In conveying the award, the selection committee said they were "truly impressed with the deep impact you have had on your students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. It is clear that you are a gifted educator and that you inspire students in many ways."
