Her colleague, Grant Crawford, looks to the United States Military Academy graduate as a source of insight and collegiality.
"Her classes are constantly characterized by innovative instructional design, ingenious use of physical models and demonstrations, high-quality laboratory experiences, masterful delivery of instruction, a consistent orientation toward professional practice, over-the-top enthusiasm, and an endearing, offbeat sense of humor,” he said.
Byers is known around the Quinnipiac community as an outstanding professor who strives to improve areas where there is little room for improvement.
"The students find Lynn to be an exemplary instructor who invests significant effort into their education," said Crawford. "She challenges them; she forces them to think deeply about course concepts, about the broader, non-technical aspects of engineering, and about their roles as future professionals."
Byers’ dedication to her students does not go unnoticed and her praise to her coworkers and students is immense.
"It’s a tremendous honor, and I’m very thankful to work with the staff and faculty in the School of Engineering who have the same student-focused priority on teaching," said Byers.
