CMAT, AMPP researchers among those to be honored with university awards


Three Institute for Transportation (InTrans) researchers are among the 80 Iowa State University faculty and staff who will be recognized this fall for winning one of the university’s annual awards.

Construction Management and Technology (CMAT) Program Director Jennifer Shane, CMAT Construction Engineer Roy Sturgill, and Asphalt Materials and Pavements Program (AMPP) Director Chris Williams will all receive university awards later this fall.

Shane, who is also an associate professor in the Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering (CCEE) Department and W.A. Klinger Teaching Professor, was one of two people to receive the university’s Award for Inclusive Excellence, which recognizes those who have advanced the university’s mission of diversity, equity, and inclusion beyond their usual job responsibilities.

Sturgill, who is also an associate professor in the CCEE Department, was one of two faculty to receive the university’s Award for Early Achievement in Research, which recognizes faculty who have demonstrated outstanding accomplishments in research and/or creative activity unusually early in their professional career.

Williams, who is also a professor in the CCEE Department and Gerald and Audrey Olson Professor in Civil Engineering, was part of a team with Eric Cochran, a professor in the Chemical and Biological Engineering Department, that received the university’s Award for Achievement in Economic Development in Iowa.

The award recognizes individuals or teams for outstanding university-based achievements in advancing the state of Iowa’s economic development.

The InTrans researchers and the other award winners will be honored at a community celebration slated for September 25. Learn more about all the awards and award winners from the Inside Iowa State article.
