John O’Brien Faculty Award for Service
Each year the Viterbi School of Engineering selects a faculty member for outstanding service to the School. The John O’Brien Faculty Award for Service was granted to Nitin Kalé, an associate professor in the Information Technology Program (ITP). Dean Yortsos pointed out Nitin’s work in expanding the ITP program, citing his creation of the Applied Analytics minor, now the most popular minor at the university. “Whether pedagogically, academically or programmatically, Nitin has left an indelible mark on ITP,” said Dean Yortsos.
