Phillip Cornwell currently teaches at the United States Air Force Academy and is an Emeritus Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. He received his Ph.D. from Princeton University in 1989 and his present interests include structural dynamics, structural health monitoring, and undergraduate engineering education. Dr. Cornwell has received an SAE Ralph R. Teetor Educational Award in 1992, and the Dean’s Outstanding Teacher award at Rose-Hulman in 2000 and the Rose-Hulman Board of Trustee’s Outstanding Scholar Award in 2001. He was one of the developers of the Rose-Hulman Sophomore Engineering Curriculum, the Dynamics Concept Inventory, and he is a co-author of Vector Mechanics for Engineers: Dynamics, by Beer, Johnston, Cornwell, and Self. In 2019 Dr. Cornwell received the Archie Higdon Distinguished Educator Award from the Mechanics Division of ASEE.
Dr. Donald E. Richards is Professor Emeritus of Mechanical Engineering at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology where he taught courses in the thermal-fluid sciences. He earned his mechanical engineering degrees from Kansas State University (BS), Iowa State University (MS), and The Ohio State University (PhD). After serving on the faculty at The Ohio State University, he joined Rose-Hulman in 1988 and retired in 2017. As part of Rose-Hulman’s participation in the NSF-funded Foundation Coalition, he helped develop Rose-Hulman’s innovative Sophomore Engineering Curriculum that was first offered in 1995. His textbook "Basic Engineering Science — A Systems, Accounting, and Modeling Approach" is a foundational text in this curriculum. In 1998, he joined Kenneth Wark as co-author of the 6th edition of "Thermodynamics" published by McGraw-Hill. In addition to teaching, he also served two years as the Director of the Center for the Practice and Scholarship of Education at Rose-Hulman.
Glen Livesay is a Professor of Biology and Biomedical Engineering; he co-developed and co-teaches the biomedical engineering capstone design sequence at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. Glen’s educational research interests include student learning styles, increasing student engagement with hands-on activities, and more recently, creativity & design. He has received an NSF CAREER award and served as a Fellow at the National Effective Teaching Institute.
