Cal Poly College of Engineering Dean Elected to National Council of Deans Committee – Cal Poly News
SAN LUIS OBISPO — Amy S. Fleischer, Dean of Cal Poly’s College of Engineering, will play an important role in providing vision and leadership to engineering education across the country as a member of the Engineering Deans Executive Committee Council (EDC).
EDC is a consortium of deans from all engineering faculties affiliated with the American Society of Engineering Education and currently has over 350 members, representing 90% of all US engineering deans. Fleischer’s election was announced at the ASEE Engineering Deans Institute’s annual conference, which was attended by more than 150 engineering deans March 7-10 in Las Vegas.
“I’m really excited about the opportunity to help shape engineering education, which we know has such a positive impact on quality of life,” Fleischer said. “And it’s an honor to be selected by peers, who recognize Cal Poly’s excellent reputation for engineering education.”
The council has several purposes, including: to influence US public policy regarding research and the management of engineering education; exchange information between its members; and promote diversity and inclusiveness in all aspects of engineering education, research, and engagement.
Fleischer, who has served as Dean of the College of Engineering since 2018, co-chairs EDC’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee. She was also one of the organizers of the first conference sessions, Discussing Current Topics for Deans at Primarily Undergraduate-Focused Institutions.
“Dean Fleischer has always demonstrated a deep commitment to the goals of the Council of Deans of Engineering,” said Cynthia Jackson-Elmoore, provost of Cal Poly and executive vice president for academic affairs. “I am thrilled to see Amy being recognized by her peers across the country for her leadership and dedication to the success of students and colleagues at the College of Engineering. »
“While we all represent our individual schools, we know we can have a much wider impact if we collaborate and share ideas, knowledge and expertise,” Fleischer said. “I’m thrilled to be part of this collaboration.”
