“I am honored to receive the 2021 School of Arts & Sciences Award for Teaching Excellence,” said He. “This was a hard year for everyone due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are all forced into remote teaching with little preparation. I did what I could by sharing my technology expertise with my fellow colleagues to help them to do what they do best—teaching. I want to express my sincere thanks to Dean Robbins and all my colleagues for their support and cooperation to get through this tough time, and we are now much better prepared for the future.”
