Emily Wins Rieman Award for Excellence in Teaching

Emily L. Atieh

Fourth year graduate student Emily L. Atieh was awarded the Rieman Award for Excellence in Teaching during the Rutgers Graduate Student Awards Ceremony. The Rieman Award recognizes exceptional performance in undergraduate teaching, which Emily has demonstrated in running both the Certificate in Chemistry Education program and a Teaching Internship in Chemistry, in addition to her contributions to the implementation of Active Learning recitations in General Chemistry.

The Rieman Award was established by the heirs of the late Dr. William Rieman, III. Dr. Rieman was the first person to receive a Ph.D. in Chemistry from Rutgers in 1925 and served for many years as a faculty member and finally Chair of the School of Chemistry, the Rutgers College Chemistry Department. A noted analytical chemist, Dr. Rieman was very interested in undergraduate education.

Congratulations, Emily!
