Damon P. Williams has been promoted to Senior Lecturer in the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE). An ISyE alumnus (IE 2002), he joined the Stewart School in 2010 as a lecturer and advisor in the Academic Office and quickly developed a reputation as an engaging and demanding instructor. Attesting to this are the teaching awards he has received over the past decade.
Williams is also the director of ISyE’s new Center for Academics, Success, and Equity (CASE), an interdisciplinary academic center created to support ISyE students, faculty, and staff. Programs are categorized according to three foci:
- Academics, which includes risk advising and tutoring;
- Success, which includes student success workshops, teaching consultations, teaching assistant (TA) orientations, the H. Milton Stewart Teaching Fellows program, and the Advisory Board mentIEs program;
- Equity, which includes programs designed to increase the intercultural competence of all students, faculty, and staff within the School. This will include new initiatives to further build the underrepresented minority pipeline of students and future faculty for ISyE.
CASE also supports ISyE’s current K-12 outreach efforts, including summer camps, partnerships with local schools, and class visits for high school students, which enables them to learn about the field of industrial engineering and ISyE.
