Audio Available from Stehlik Going-Away Party
Faculty, staff, students and alumni gathered May 31 to pay tribute to Mark Stehlik
, outgoing assistant dean for undergraduate education for the School of Computer Science.
A party in Stehlik's honor was held in the Collaborative Commons of the Gates and Hillman Centers. About 200 people attended.
During impromptu remarks May 31, Stehlik thanked his colleagues and his students:
Stehlik, who has taught computer science at the Pittsburgh campus since 1982 and served as assistant dean since 1988, is stepping down this summer
to begin a five-year appointment as associate dean for education at Carnegie Mellon Qatar.
Tom Cortina, associate teaching professor, will assume the duties of SCS assistant dean and is working with Stehlik on the transition.
Stehlik was this year’s recipient
of the Doherty Award for Sustained Contributions to Excellence in Education, and is a past winner of the Herbert A. Simon Award for Teaching Excellence in Computer Science.
On May 31, David Kosbie, assistant teaching professor of computer science and this year's recipient of the Simon Award, talked about how his teaching methods were patterned after those of Stehlik:
About Carnegie Mellon:
Carnegie Mellon is a private research university with a
distinctive mix of programs in engineering, computer science, robotics, business,
public policy, fine arts and the humanities. More than 10,000 undergraduate and
graduate students receive an education characterized by its focus on creating
and implementing solutions for real problems, interdisciplinary collaboration,
and innovation. A small student-to-faculty ratio provides an opportunity for
close interaction between students and professors. While technology is pervasive
on its 144-acre Pittsburgh campus, Carnegie Mellon is also distinctive among
leading research universities for the world-renowned programs in its College of
Fine Arts. A global university, Carnegie Mellon has campuses in Silicon Valley, Calif.,
and Qatar, and programs in Asia, Australia and Europe.
