From 2015-2016, I was the president of ASEE@SU, the Syracuse University student chapter of the American Society for Engineering Education. Our events and initiatives aimed to (1) increase best practices in engineering education, (2) assist graduate engineering students seeking employment in academia, and (3) build a network for engineering education at Syracuse University. Information on current and future events can be found on the ASEE@SU website.
From 2011-2015, I was the president of SU-SUNY ESF Net Impact, a graduate student chapter of Net Impact. Net Impact is an international nonprofit organization with a mission to inspire, educate, and equip individuals to use the power of business to create a more socially and environmentally sustainable world. I was first connected to the group during my Certificate of Advanced Study in Sustainable Enterprise (CASSE) program, which is another great opportunity for SU and SUNY ESF students to develop a breadth of knowledge in understanding both the research and practice of sustainable principles.
During the summers of 2012, 2014, and 2015, I led green infrastructure lessons and activities for Project ENGAGE, which is a program that serves young women in the 7th and 8th grade over the course of two one-week camps. The program features classroom lessons, field trips, and hands-on activities on a variety of engineering themes. An example design module that I co-developed entails the construction of doghouses with fully functioning green roofs.
