Carisa Ramming, associate professor in the School of Architecture at Oklahoma State University, was awarded the 2019 OSU Faculty Excellence Award for her mentorship and efforts toward student development and retention. The award was presented at the OSU Conference on Student Retention on March 6.
“[Ramming’s] reach is far beyond the School of Architecture and even the College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology,” said Suzanne Bilbeisi, Centennial Professor and Head of architecture. “She is an amazing role model.”
Ramming earned her bachelor’s and master’s in architectural engineering and a master’s in civil engineering, construction management from OSU in 2001 and 2004, respectively. She began teaching at OSU in 2007 as a visiting faculty member. Ramming is now an associate professor and teaches engineering science statics, steel design, and building foundations, among other subjects. She is also an advisor for several clubs including the Maude Squad, Architecture Engineering Institute, and the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers.
“It has been crucial to my education to be able to work under such an influential woman in the engineering field,” said Loren Emerson, civil engineering student. “I believe she has gone above and beyond to mentor any student crossing her path.”
