Two Bloustein-affiliated students were selected by the Rutgers Student Employment Office to receive 2012 Student Employee of the Year Awards. Recipients were chosen out of 73 candidates nominated by their supervisors and received awards ranging from $250 to $100. Mathew Campo MCRP ’12 was named graduate student employee of the year for his work at the Center for Transportation Safety, Security, and Risk. Campo delved into a U.S. Department of Homeland Security-funded project on inland waterways and quickly went on to become the unofficial project lead. “It is easy to see that he is in a class of his own with regard to work quality, initiative, disposition and reliability,” said Henry J. Mayer, executive director of the center. Brian Chang, an undergraduate public health major, won first place for his work in the Department of Nutritional Sciences. Chang’s responsibilities included training students and working on research in the lab. Bloustein professor Jane Miller, though not his direct supervisor, has worked with Brian in her Research Methods course and described him as well-spoken and good at explaining concepts to other students. “I’ve also invited him to be a student assistant for my future Research Methods class, helping lead in-class activities and assist in labs,” said Miller.
