fashion merchandising and design faculty member Michael Mamp has been awarded the International Textile and Apparel Association Teaching Excellence award.
The award recognizes Mamp, a CMU alum, for his leadership in undergraduate and graduate education.
"This recognition is so special to me,” Mamp said. “I believe it celebrates my personal and program commitment to rigorous instruction that incorporates cutting-edge technology; consideration of varied forms of delivery; and curriculum that addresses issues related to diversity, equity and inclusion.”
Mamp’s courses at CMU include Advanced Visual Merchandising; Fashion Illustration; and Queer Fashion, a course that Mamp developed and launched last year.
Mamp will be recognized in October at the ITAA annual meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada.
He is committed to bringing the future of fashion to CMU and to the success of his students.
“When I was accepted to the program, I received an email from Dr. Mamp and he’s stood by me,” said current student Janae Jones. “He’ll ask if there’s anything I need, and he stepped in to help me create a plan for graduation.”
