Professor Alexander Sherstov was awarded UCLA Academic Senate Distinguished Teaching Award. The goal of the UCLA Academic Senate Teaching Award is to increase awareness of UCLA’s leadership in teaching and public service by honoring individuals who exemplify dedication to their subject and students, hard work, and excellence in the field of teaching at UCLA. By recognizing teachers for their achievements, the award gives UCLA an opportunity to demonstrate to the community, alumni, students, parents, donors, and the world what makes UCLA “a beacon of excellence in higher education.” These awards boost morale on campus, provide role models for faculty and students, and highlight best practices.
Professors Leonard Kleinrock and Professor Joseph DiStefano were the last winners from the computer science department.
