The Committee on the Campus Environment (CCE) held its annual Environmental Leadership Awards on Wednesday, April 22, via Zoom to recognize students, faculty, staff, and community members who demonstrate exceptional environmental leadership both on campus and in their everyday lives.
Associate Professor and Director of the PhD Program, Dr. Lisa Reyes Mason, was awarded the 2020 Faculty Award for Environmental Leadership.
She exemplifies the creative innovation the world needs at the intersection of climate change and social justice. Mason is a strong proponent of multidisciplinary public impact scholarship and focuses deeply on ensuring that her research positively benefits her communities.
Her most recent work includes collaborating with two other UT professors, Andrea Ludwig of Biosystems Engineering and Jon Hathaway of Civil and Environmental Engineering, on a project in North Knoxville that aims to better manage flooding in the area through community rain gardens.
The College is thankful for the inspiration that Dr. Reyes Mason has brought to the university as a whole and to our college.
