Why I Serve On The Board

I am deeply committed to working on the challenges in higher education, and engineering education particularly. I am excited to part of the Advisory Board as we move to address the opportunities the next several years and decades will bring. I appreciate the opportunity to participate with this Board and their willingness to embrace an outside perspective.

What is your focus within engineering education

I am focused on ensuring that future engineers receive the best education in not only engineering basics and principles, but also better understand their responsibilities as global citizens. We need to focus on providing students with the skills and tools they will need -- including analytical, communication, and leadership -- as well as the experience they need to be successful in whatever they choose do to.
