Faculty Participation

Statement Reapproved On:  October 7, 2009

The ASEE Engineering Deans Council supports and encourages the participation of engineering college faculty members in the fullest possible range of activities of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE).

  • Engagement with activities of ASEE Professional Interest Councils and Geographic Councils and attendance at ASEE local and national meetings can contribute to engineering educators' knowledge of their own fields of specialization, their acquaintance with research and activities in other fields, and their exchanges across institutional and geographical boundaries.
  • Faculty collaboration with student chapters of ASEE can yield benefits such as professional guidance for future engineering educators, encouragement to the broadest possible variety of students to enroll in and complete engineering degree programs, and added value to student interactions with pre-college student populations and other non-university groups. ASEE Campus Representatives perform valuable recruitment and liaison functions and promote faculty members' access to and knowledge of ASEE opportunities for professional development.

The Engineering Deans Council of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) is the leadership organization of the more than 330 deans of engineering in the United States. Founded in 1893, ASEE is a nonprofit association dedicated to the improvement of engineering and engineering technology education.
