PhD student wins Pitt leadership award


Last week, Chun Hua Tsai, a PhD student in the Information Science and Technology program, was awarded a 2017 Leadership and Service Award from the University of Pittsburgh’s Graduate and Professional Student Government (GPSP).

Tsai has been very active in the Pitt community since coming here in 2013. Some of his most notable highlight are:

“While my outreach efforts to build resources and collaboration have always given me great satisfaction, it is the valuable experience of reflection and personal career development that I believe to be most important in my PhD study,” said Tsai.

The GPSG Leadership and Service Award seeks to recognize current University of Pittsburgh graduate and professional students for their service or leadership to the University of Pittsburgh, the surrounding community, and to the world at large. By creating this award, GPSG aims to make service by graduate and professional students more visible and valued on campus and to honor those who have demonstrated outstanding leadership and service.
