Professor Christine Masters
Dr. Christine Masters, Associate Professor in Engineering Science and Mechanics, was nominated by first year students whom she made a positive impact, transitioning them from high school to their college careers. The students feel that Dr. Masters has served them in a greater capacity outside of the classroom by being a mentor and a support system. First year students were asked to reflect on classes and interactions with faculty and they identified Chris as instrumental to their success during their first year.
