Three New Keystone Professors Selected

Professors Sheryl Ehrman (chemical and biomolecular engineering), Romel Gomez (electrical and computer engineering) and Jim Duncan (mechanical engineering) have been selected to join Keystone: the Clark School Academy of Distinguished Professors.

"I am honored to be a part of the Keystone program," said Ehrman. "I have always enjoyed teaching the Introduction to Engineering Design course. I look forward to working with the other Keystone professors to evolve the course into an experience that will really get students excited about engineering, as well as one that will get them off to the right start when it comes to fundamental skills they will need later on."

Keystone professors make a commitment to the improvement of education in fundamental engineering courses. The program is a renewable three-year appointment that includes a base salary increase, discretionary funds to support the recipient’s activities and additional support personnel.

Keystone aims to help improve student retention and graduation rates by ensuring students the best learning experiences in the early, formative stages.
