American Society for Engineering Education Conference – Baltimore, MD, June 25-28
ASEE’s Annual Conference and Exposition is the only conference dedicated to all disciplines of engineering and engineering technology education. Join EOP Network Members, collaborators, and grantees at various sessions that will highlight the EOP initiative. You’ll learn about the EOP Toolkit and Scaling for Impact Roadmap, and hear from leaders from across academia, accreditation, and industry about the critical importance of sustainability in engineering education.
WELCOME: Victoria Matthew, EOP Network Manager
We’re excited to welcome Victoria Matthew as our new EOP Network Manager! Victoria will coordinate, support, and convene the EOP Network, a group of 70 individuals representing diverse sectors and lived experiences who are committed to ensuring that education equips all engineers with the skills and knowledge to contribute to a healthy world for lifetimes to come. Victoria has extensive experience supporting impact-driven networks and communities of practice and previously coordinated the EOP Pilot Grant Program Community of Practice. We’re thrilled to have Victoria on board!

NEW FINDINGS FROM EOP TRAILBLAZERS:
How to Integrate Sustainability Into College Engineering Curricula
Curricular change is never easy. Yet efforts to imbue sustainability into engineering education are yielding successful results. Read about EOP’s pilot program across five universities, and the various lessons — which apply to all higher ed settings — each institution is lifting up as they incorporate the framework.
WE ARE ENGINEERING FOR ONE PLANET:
Be one of the names and faces of our EOP community!
The EOP community comprises all forms of supporters who believe in a common goal: to ensure all future engineers across all disciplines learn the fundamental skills and principles of social and environmental sustainability.
