Construction Management Professor Dr. Phil Barlow has just been named the AGC Outstanding Educator for 2017. Phil's work as an educator, a mentor of students, and as a colleague in the construction industry set him apart as an outstanding leader and role model for this award. AGC was particularly appreciative of his work advising students in the Cal Poly CM program. Phil will receive a $5,000 award for himself as well as two $2,500 scholarships for eligible Construction Management students.

Since 1985, the AGC (Associated General Contractors) Education and Research Foundation has recognized annually an educator who makes a significant mark in the field of construction education. The Outstanding Educator award is based on a nominee’s academic contribution as well as his/her work with students outside of the classroom and involvement with colleagues in the industry.

The qualified applicant must be a full–time teaching faculty member of a university construction management or construction–related engineering program or with an institution–approved construction option. Nominees must have at least four years full–time teaching experience.
