NJIT Provost Priscilla P. Nelson honored at National Academy of Engineering
Date:5/13/2008

and outside of class. Part of becoming a better educator is to listen to students and realize that they are your clients. There is a lot of interest in fostering good teaching at the university level than there was 20 years ago, and thats very exciting.

Nelson also enjoys being a Mole. Yes, a Mole. Ever since she was introduced as a graduate student to tunnel-boring machines, she has always liked interacting with contractors who specialize in heavy construction and engineers who build underground. Theyre a very special group, and about ten years ago I was voted a Mole, a member of an organization focused on this work, she says. Dealing with the people who do the work is special, she said. It allows me space to think outside my box, which I like.

Prior to coming to NSF, Nelson served on the faculty in civil engineering at the University of Texas at Austin, rising from assistant through full professor ranks. She has earned master's degrees in both geology (Indiana University) and structural engineering (University of Oklahoma). In 1983, she received her doctorate in geotechnical engineering from Cornell University. For more information about Nelson see http://www.njit.edu/publicinfo/newsroom/nelsonpriscilla_bio.php.
