Summary: 
Pictured above: Chancellor and Professor Henry Yang, Dr. Alejandro Parra, and Director Cynthia Cronk, Human Resources
Please join us in congratulating Dr. Alejandro Parra for being
selected as one of this year's ten recipients of the prestigious
UCSB Staff Citation of Excellence award! Dr. Parra joined UCSB
in 2004 as an Assistant Development Engineer to manage the
department's unit operations laboratory and assist with teaching
the ChE180 A-B Lab courses to juniors and seniors.
Since his appointment, Dr. Parra has invested enormous effort
to revitalize the undergraduate lab by refurbishing equipment,
launching a course website, managing the day-to-day operations
of the lab, and acquiring external funding from the Dreyfus
Foundation to create new experiments and purchase all new
computers for the lab. These new capabilities and experiments
expose our students to both traditional and diverse Chemical
Engineering topics and provide valuable practical training
experience. In addition to the ChE Lab, Dr. Parra is heavily
involved in outreach efforts on campus which target Latino
students and parents from the local community and he also serves
as Editor-in-Chief of Santa Barbara's/El Mexicano/newspaper.
