Reginald Rogers, an assistant professor in the College of Engineering at the Rochester Institute of Technology in New York, has been selected to receive the Dr. Janice A. Lumpkin Educator of the Year Award from the National Society of Black Engineers. The award is given annually to a collegiate faculty member who demonstrates commitment to advancing education in engineering, science or mathematics.

Dr. Rogers will be honored on March 24 at the society’s annual convention in Pittsburgh. He was chosen for the award due to his academic and research achievements and for mentoring African American students.

Dr. Rogers is a graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He holds a master’s degree in chemical engineering from Northeastern University in Boston and a Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the University of Michigan.

The award is named after the late Janice Lumpkin, who was a professor of chemical and biomedical engineering at the University of Maryland Baltimore County. She was a strong advocate for increasing the number of women and students from underrepresented groups in engineering. Dr. Lumpkin received a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She held master’s and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Pennsylvania. Professor Lumpkin died in 1997 at the age of 39.
