About Mr. Doug Aversano


Teaching Quality Rating1Teaching quality rating A+

Student comments about the teacher:


Aversano is the best professor I have had at Cal Poly so far. He has an immense knowledge of the subject and can answer any and all questions due to his vast experience in the field. He identifies what material will be covered and then covers it, no messing around. If you put in the effort, you will get a fair grade. I hope I get to take another one of his classes soon.

Has experience in the field and strengthens teaching through sharing stories & practical knowledge. Approachable & understanding. Takes the time necessary to ensure students understand course material.

He knows everything you need to know about Fire and Society. I felt like I was learning from the best!

He made everything very clear especially for students that have no natural resources background like myself. He also set up multiple valuable field trips that significantly increased my understanding of the lecture material.

A dedicated instructor who knew what he was talking about and could apply it to his own experiences. His wealth of knowledge helped us better grasp the material.


1 Teaching quality rating is based on student teaching evaluations completed by Cal Poly students. A cumulative grand average for all courses taught over the last two years is calculated from responses to the student evaluation question, "Overall, this instructor was educationally effective" that ranges on a scale from 1=Strongly disagree to 5=Strongly agree.
