Ed Green (’81) receives Rutgers teaching award


Feb. 15, 2016 – Edwin “Ed” Green (’81 Ph.D. forest biometrics), professor in the Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Natural Resources at Rutgers University, received the Excellence in Graduate Teaching Award from the university’s New Brunswick Graduate School. Green is also program director the spatial statistics at the Grant F. Walton Center for Remote Sensing and Spatial Analysis.

Colleague Julie Lockwood, who nominated Green, calls him “an essential mentor to graduate students beyond those for who he is the primary adviser.” She added, “If the measure of our impact as academicians lies mostly in the legacy we leave in student achievements, then Ed Green will be remembered as a superstar.”

In an interesting coincidence, Green’s son, Edwin “EJ” Green Jr., was recognized at the same ceremony. The younger Green, who earned his bachelor’s at Rutgers and is currently a graduate student in the university’s Philosophy of the Mind program, received the Graduate Student Research Award. In his award nomination, he was called the best student in the history of the program!
