Kimberly DiGiovanni, associate teaching professor of civil engineering at Quinnipiac, recently received the Emerging Leader Award from the American Council on Education Women’s Network in Connecticut.

This award recognizes and honors a woman with at least five years of professional experience in higher education who has demonstrated leadership in the development and/or operation of an office, program or service that has significantly advanced women’s learning and development in the state of Connecticut.

“I am honored to be the recipient of the Emerging Leader Award,” DiGiovanni said. “I am grateful for all the amazing individuals I work with and alongside in higher education.”

DiGiovanni received the award for her commitment to student learning and development. She strives to support student progress with opportunities to apply what they learn in and through their work with community organizations, municipalities, and other non-profit organizations.

Taskin Kocak, dean of the School of Computing and Engineering at Quinnipiac, said, “We are thrilled to congratulate Kim DiGiovanni on receiving the ACE Women's Network-CT Emerging Leader Award. This prestigious award recognizes Kim's outstanding contributions and leadership in her field and is a testament to her dedication and hard work. Kim's achievement serves as an inspiration to all of us, and we are proud to have her as a valued member of our faculty and community.”
