The IEEE-HKN Board of Governors has conferred on the UConn Chapter of HKN (Eta Kappa Nu: the electrical engineering honor society) the 2015-2016 IEEE-HKN Outstanding Chapter Award. This award is presented to IEEE-HKN chapters in recognition of excellence in their chapter administration and programs. Recipients are selected on the basis of their annual chapter report. Winning chapter reports not only showcase their chapter’s activities in an individualized manner, they provided multiple views and instances of their work, which really brought their chapter’s activities to life. Of critical concern to the Outstanding Chapter Awards evaluation committee in judging a chapter are activities to: improve professional development; raise instructional and institutional standards; encourage scholarship and creativity; provide a public service, and generally further the established
goals of IEEE-HKN.
The UConn Chapter is one of 21 chapters selected for their outstanding performance and the value they bring to their members, peers, and university.
