Princeton Resident Wins National Distinguished Educator Award

Pollock

John Pollock, a communication studies professor at The College of New Jersey, was awarded the annual Distinguished Educator Award at annual conference of  the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication last month in Chicago. The award is the highest honor awarded annually by the association’s Mass Communication and Society division, and recognizes educators who have had a significant effect on communication pedagogy through excellence in teaching and mentoring.

Pollock, a professor for 20 years at TCNJ, has helped more than 100 undergraduate student research teams present papers at national communication conferences, a number of which have won top paper awards. He frequently sends students to top communication, public health, and public affairs graduate programs across the country. In 2003, he won the Thomas A Veenendall Award for the National Communication Association’s “Adviser of the Year” from Lambda Pi Eta, the national communication student honor society. He also won The College of New Jersey’s “Mentoring Student Research” award in 2002.­­­­­­
