Stephen Reichenbach, professor of computer science and technology, is one of four UNL faculty who have earned the University of Nebraska's most prestigious awards for research, creative activity, teaching and engagement.
Reichenbach received an Innovation, Development and Engagement Award, which recognizes faculty who have extended academic expertise beyond the boundaries of the university in ways that have enriched the broader community.
In a previous career as a teacher, Reichenbach gained exposure to early personal desktop computers and was quickly hooked on computer science. He co-founded Internet Nebraska Corp., which offering high-speed Internet connections to Nebraskans. The company grew from 20 subscribers to more than 2,100 in less than two years, and is still the oldest and largest internet service provider based in the state.
The university-wide award winners were announced March 25 and will be presented their awards during a luncheon in May.
