Education is, above all, about students, and 2012–2013 has been a banner year. Three members of the Class of ’13 and five Grove School recent graduates have received the prestigious National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship; a chemical engineering major was named a Goldwater Scholar; and an Environmental Engineering major was CCNY's valedictorian. This year, Grove School faculty received the CCNY President’s Award for Excellence in its inaugural year; the CCNY Mentoring Award in Architecture, Biomedical Education, Engineering, and Science; an NSF CAREER award; election to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences; and election to the inaugural class of the Fellows of the American Mathematical Society. We have also added a record ten new members, including three full professors. The Grove School’s surge in entrepreneurship continues with the Zahn Center as an incubator, and with two funded prizes for excellence. CCNY students have taken top honors in the CUNY-wide Third Entrepreneurial Concept Competition. And there has been a $1.5 million bequest from a ground-breaking alumnus in aircraft and aerospace engineering.
