Professor Alok Deoraj of the Robert Stempel College of Public Health & Social Work‘s Department of Environmental and Occupational Health has been racking up the awards and recognitions; he was selected as a faculty fellow of the STEM Transformation Institute and an affiliate faculty member of the Biomolecular Sciences Institute while earning a promotion to senior instructor at the college.
With more than 20 years of research, teaching and management experience in academic and industry settings, Deoraj supervises graduate research and teaches environmental and global public health courses at undergraduate and graduate levels.
Through funding from a Writing Across the Curriculum Grant he was recently awarded, Deoraj will enhance a popular Global Learning “Health Without Borders” online course starting in the Fall 2016 semester.
“The enhancement of writing assignments in this course will allow students to gain real-life experiences,” he says.
