Congratulations to Dr. Hussain Al-Rizzo, associate professor of systems engineering in UALR’s Donaghey College of Information Science and Systems Engineering, who won the $10,000 Ted and Virginia Bailey Foundation Faculty Excellence Award in Teaching.

This award is to recognize, encourage, and reward superior teachers – individuals whose command of their respective disciplines, teaching methodologies, communications skills, concern for student performance, and commitment to the learning process exemplify the teacher/mentor model.

The award is not intended to be a popularity contest. It is designed to distinguish those teachers who maintain high expectations of their students and who ensure academic rigor in their courses.
