ISE Alumnus Receives Prestigious Teaching Award

Jeffrey Joines (Class of 1990, 1993 and 1996) receives 2016 Board of Governors Award for Excellence in Teaching

The UNC System’s Board of Governors regard teaching as the #1 responsibility of the 17 institutions within the UNC System. To show the importance of teaching, The Board adopted a set of six recommendations, including the following:

That the Board of Governors create annual systemwide teaching awards with monetary stipends which are designated “Board of Governors Awards for Excellence in Teaching.”

Dr. Jeffrey A. Joines, Associate Professor and Associate Department Head of Undergraduate Studies in the Department of Textile Engineering, Chemistry and Science (TECS), received his BSIE (1990), his MSIE (1993) and a PhD in Industrial Engineering (1996) all from NC State University. He joined the faculty at NC State in 2000.

Dr. Joines, honored in 2012 as an NC State Alumni Distinguished Undergraduate Professor, is passionate about teaching and creating the best environments to foster student learning. His teaching philosophy is rooted in the belief that a teacher must have passion for his or her subject and must create active learning environments emphasizing “real-world” experiences that will challenge students to reach new levels of success.

Dr. Joines was honored at the Spring Commencement Ceremony by a member of the Board of Governors and received a $12,500 stipend and a bronze medallion.
