Hello! As Dean of the College of Engineering at Lawrence Tech, I’m pleased to be able to use this new forum to communicate with alumni and friends of the University. Since I’m still relatively new in the position of Dean, I know many of you have not yet had the chance to meet me personally. This blog will help serve as a means for you to become acquainted with me, as well as learn about activities and events within the College.

Most recently we completed ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) accreditation, as well as NCA (North Central Association of Colleges and Schools) accreditation, both significant steps in preserving the integrity of our curriculum and the reputation of the College. I’m pleased to say that both visits went well.

Fall term is nearing its end, and although enrollment was down again a bit this year, I’m very pleased with the quality of the students in our classrooms and labs. We truly have a budding group of entrepreneurs and inventors wandering our halls, and I’m sure they’ll make their marks in industry in the near future, as so many of you have.

Please check on this blog regularly…there are a lot of exciting things happening in the College, and I look forward to sharing news of them with you in future posts.
