Heather Pinkett and Alessandro F. Rotta Loria have been named the 2022 recipients of The Alumnae of Northwestern University’s Award for Curriculum Innovation.

The award seeks to support faculty members offering undergraduates innovations that enhance their curriculum through new courses, methods of instruction and new components to existing classes.

The recognition comes with $12,500 in award funding to be split between innovation development ($7,000), stipend ($5,000) and the faculty member’s home department ($500). 

Pinkett will use the award to work with students to develop a national resource to increase curriculum inclusivity and address representation in STEM, and Rotta Loria will create massive real-world datasets that allow students to realize virtual geothermal energy projects with potential to impact the city.
