2023 Public Policy Colloquium (PPC)


February 6 - 8, 2023

About The Colloquium

The Public Policy Colloquium of the ASEE Engineering Deans Council (EDC), which began in 1991, is organized by a Public Policy Committee, comprised of engineering deans – members of EDC.

The Colloquium has a dual role: to strengthen the discussion of engineering education and research issues between the deans of engineering and key public policy makers, and to enable the deans to refine their public policy agenda. Attendance is open only to deans of engineering and their federal/government relations representatives*.

*University federal government relations representative has to be registered for the conference by their dean.

The 2022 Engineering Deans Public Policy Colloquium is back in person in 2022! Register now for an exciting program focused on regional innovation and competitiveness. The U.S. Congress and Biden Administration are poised to make major investments in critical technology areas focused on growing our talent base, broadening capacity, and advancing use-inspired research around the nation. As hubs for research and workforce development in their regions and nationally, schools and colleges of engineering are key players to make progress on these issues. Deans will come together to discuss these topics and other policy issues facing schools of engineering with federal agency officials, Members of Congress, and other policymakers.
