23. Recognition of Service

24. 2007 Initiatives Innovation Diversity 1 - Health and Life Sciences 2 - International Outreach and Globalization Engineers without Borders: In the next two decades, almost two billion additional people are expected to populate the Earth, 95% of them in developing or underdeveloped countries. Growth will create unprecedented demands for energy, food, land, water, transportation, materials, environmental cleanup, telecommunication, and infrastructure. Role of engineers will be critical in fulfilling demands at various scales. On November 4, Bill Farr, VP of Engineers Without Borders presented “Engineering for the Developing World: Challenges and Opportunities. Student chapter currently being formed. Go GREEN - Green Organizations: Global Responsibility for Economic and Environmental Necessity: Emphasizes sustainable development in business and industry - looks at design, engineering, manufacturing, technology and leadership processes implemented and maintained for the purpose of being environmentally and socially responsible, and cost effective to save natural resources.  One week course includes discussions, guest lecturers, visits and tours of industries and a visit to the small town of Ladenburg, Germany. Rolls-Royce provided tours with some of their affiliates in Germany in 2005. Designing program to expand to France and Italy. German/Engineering Program: Five-year dual degree program with domestic internship, as well as a five-month internship in Germany that is organized and supervised in collaboration with the University of Applied Science in Heilbronn , Southern Germany . BS/BA: Five year BS (engr.) BA French program, internship in France, semester at Universite de la Mediterranee. Hoosier Connection Scholarships: School currently offers scholarships to international students. New scholarship endowment for international students. Articulation Agreements with numerous universities. Hybrid International Program (HIP): AS and BS course delivery abroad target market Malaysia.. 3 - IUPUI Faculty/Industry Relationships How do we build more vibrant relationships? Faculty site visits are currently being used. Do we want a performance measure such as # of contacts? What is industry expectation? How do you channel departments to get value out of relationships with companies? 4 - DIAC Actions from Site Review Use DIAC as one of the means to improve the School. Develop “external” actions to take it to the next level. 5 - Strategic approach to membership recruitment Are there gaps in membership such as small companies, start-ups, minority owned businesses, etc. 1 - Health and Life Sciences 2 - International Outreach and Globalization Engineers without Borders: In the next two decades, almost two billion additional people are expected to populate the Earth, 95% of them in developing or underdeveloped countries.
