What is a Campus Representative?

An ASEE Campus Representative is designated by his/her institution to serve as the liaison between ASEE Headquarters and faculty and students on campus.

Campus Representatives play a crucial role in recruiting new ASEE members and in keeping current and potential members informed of ASEE activities. As the local, grass-roots presence of the Society, the importance of the services Campus Representatives provide to their schools and to ASEE cannot be overemphasized. They are the direct link between colleagues with questions, concerns, and comments about ASEE and the staff who can best respond. Their role is vital in getting information on membership opportunities and ASEE activities to potential members on campus. The growth, stability, and effective operation of ASEE in accomplishing its mission of promoting excellence in engineering education directly depend upon Campus Representatives across our nation.

Spread the Word Recruitment Campaign

Each year Campus Representatives participate in ASEE's Spread the Word membership promotion program. Each year at the ASEE Conference a reception is held to honor Campus Representatives. At this reception awards are presented to the Campus Representatives that recruit the highest number of members and those with the highest percentage of faculty members at their institutions. This is ASEE's way of thanking the Campus Representatives for all their hard work in recruiting members and helping ASEE in its commitment to further engineering and engineering technology education.
