The Fair Medal recognizes accomplishments in the education and development of future engineers. This award honors Gordon Maskew Fair, a professor of sanitary engineering at Harvard University. This year’s recipient, Dr. Michael Stenstrom, teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in water and wastewater treatment, mathematical modeling of environmental systems and laboratory analysis. During his career at UCLA he has served in several university administrative assignments, including chair of the Civil and Environmental Engineering department, and director of the Institute of the Environment. He holds a Ph.D. in environmental systems engineering from Clemson University, and while there, taught courses in biological process design and operator training. Dr. Stenstrom has performed and published research in several areas of environmental engineering while encouraging his students to do the same.
