Assistant Professor Maysam Pournik has been a respected member of MPGE’s faculty who is dedicated to his students and their learning. On April 7, Pournik was recognized for his talent in teaching by being named Outstanding Faculty of the Year by OU’s Student Government Association. This prestigious award comes directly from the student body. Just to be nominated is a great honor. Pournik came to OU in 2010. He takes any opportunity presented to learn how to teach better. He has integrated digital learning within his courses, and is always willing to discuss questions students have. In addition to teaching, Pournik, also, serves as a faculty advisor to our students. He places just as much care and attention towards ensuring students are on the right path to graduate on time as he does in his classes. Congratulations, Dr. Pournik!
