  • Service and Outreach Committee conducted seven programs/events allowing staff members to give back to the community. The future goal is to provide expanded opportunities in the spring for staff members to engage with the community. 
  • Staff Appreciation, Recognition and Funding conducted four programs/events to engage with staff members. The future goal is to increase the participation of individuals from a wider variety of Engineering areas/departments.
