Kevin Burke has been commended, once again, for his dedication to students and teaching.
The Milton Plesur Award is given by the UB Student Association on behalf of students who nominate their instructors. The award carries the honor of being recognized as an outstanding professor by the students they teach.
The award is named for the late Milton Plesur, a UB professor
that epitomized a number of valued characteristics rarely combined
in a single individual. He delivered engaging lectures with
an understanding style and crossed teached/student boundaries by
acting as a friend to his students.
Professor Burke, also a co-director of the EE Undergraduate
Program, has received other awards for his teaching and mentorship,
including the BEAM Research Mentor of the Year and the UB Tau Beta
Pi Professor of the Year.
