The IDSA Education Award is presented in recognition of significant, distinguished, and long-term contributions of career or tenured faculty to the field of industrial design academia. Further, these individuals have earned the respect and admiration of colleagues and students for their method and practice of teaching industrial design.
Individuals are nominated by a peer or student for this distinction and a nomination must be accompanied by letters of recommendation on behalf of the candidate. All candidates who qualify are rigorously evaluated by IDSA's Awards Committee and subsequently approved by IDSA's Board of Directors before being bestowed with this great honor.
Presentation of this award is an IDSA members-only privilege.
