Awards for Excellence at the Student Interface (Storm, Aqua Man, Captain Planet, and Atlas)

The student-selected "Super Heroes" Awards for Excellence at the Student Interface--the Aqua Man (DC Justice League), Captain Planet (Turner/DIC Entertainment), and Storm (X-Men) awards for outstanding faculty instructors and the Atlas Award for the most outstanding support staff member--are much coveted honors in the department, and most recipients are extremely reluctant to part with their statuettes when their award year comes to an end.

HISTORY: In 2019 (and all subsequent years), the awards will be made at the annual spring picnic organized and hosted by HASSA. In prior years, the statuettes were awarded during the annual student research symposium (El Día). In 2018, the Atlas Award for the most outstanding staff member was added. Prior to 2017, AquaMan and/or AquaWoman awards were presented. Prior to 2016, students voted for the most outstanding undergraduate and graduate instructors. Prior to 2014, students voted for the most outstanding junior and senior faculty instructors--Assistant-Associate Professor rank and Professor rank, respectively.
