    John Greivenkamp Receives SPIE 2017 Educator Award

    The International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE) has awarded the distinguished SPIE Educator Award for 2017 to OSC Professor John E. Greivenkamp.

    The honor was presented to Prof. Greivenkamp in recognition of his demonstrated dedication to both formal and informal optics education, passion for transferring knowledge to the next generation of engineers and inspiring students of all descriptions to an appreciation of science. The award will be given at a future SPIE meeting, and more information on John’s selection will be released in early January 2017.

    "It is exciting to see this this well-deserved recognition of John’s outstanding contributions – both to the educational program at OSC, and to the optics community at large,” said OSC Dean Thomas L. Koch. "We are fortunate to have faculty of John’s caliber."

    Our warmest of congratulations to John from all of us at the College of Optical Sciences!
