IME RECOGNITION OF EXCELLENCE PROGRAM
Name of the program:
- IME Recognition of Excellence
The purpose of the IME Recognition of Excellence program is to recognize individuals who have achieved service or professional excellence in concert with their relationship with the IME Department. The primary form of recognition will be a public display of the individual's achievements housed in the IME Department. This "wall of IME excellence" will provide a direct motivational benefit to current and future IME students by providing a historical perspective of the department and a vision of what they may achieve in their own careers.
