THE BENEFITS OF PROFESSORS WITH STRONG INDUSTRY BACKGROUNDS  Chris Banyai ’11 says he benefited from the way Safety Sciences professors design their classes. “The faculty have really strong industry backgrounds and bring real-world scenarios into the classwork. They’re really good at enabling you to apply yourself.” Chris is now safety leader at Georgia Pacific.
