the Millennium Momentum
Message by Wallace T. Fowler
was organized and established more than 100 years ago, in 1893.
Since that time, there has been a tremendous change in the material
that is taught in our engineering programs, but there has been much
less change in how that material is taught. In the next decade,
we will probably experience more change in how we teach than ever
Society, too, must change as education evolves. In the past year,
ASEE has accomplished many goalsbut there is still more to
do. We must become more agile, more responsive to members'
changing needs, and more proactive in promoting teamwork among our
members to leverage resources and address problems. As my term as
president comes to a close, I'd like to review some of the
initiatives and challenges that are critically important to ASEE's
One year ago, we completed a comprehensive review of the goals and
objectives set forth in the ASEE Strategic Plan, which was adopted
in 1994. We found that we had accomplished many of our goals, but
that other goals still needed attention. Ronald Barr, ASEE Vice
President for Member Affairs, chairs a strategic planning committee
that will propose new strategic goals and activities for the society.
Any ASEE member who wants to propose new goals is invited to submit
them to me (email@example.com)
or to Ronald Barr (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We will bring all suggestions to the attention of the strategic
the past year, ASEE has made great progress in updating and expanding
its engineering educator database, restructuring it to make it a
comprehensive database of all engineering faculty members nationwide.
of our goals is to recognize trends earlier, and thereby provide
better services for our members. For example, we find that the proportion
of female members of ASEE is increasing significantly. While almost
22 percent of those who have joined ASEE in the past year are women,
less than 2 percent of those who have been members for longer than
20 years are women. Today, women account for more than 35 percent
of ASEE members who are younger than 35, and more than 22 percent
of those in the 35 to 44 age group. Increasing the diversity within
ASEE is one of our most important near-term challenges. The segments
of society that are underrepresented in the engineering and engineering
technology enterprise have many talented individuals who, given
the chance, would make significant contributions to engineering
and engineering technology. We must find ways to bring them into
ASEE Engineering Deans Council (EDC) continues to increase its influence
on national educational policies each year. At the EDC Public Policy
Colloquium in February, the deans discussed engineering staffing
problems, research funding, and other issues with congressional
John Glenn, Representative Vernon Ehlers, and Representative Rush
Holt addressed the deans, discussing ways to encourage students
to study more mathematics and science in K-12, making them better
able to pursue careers in engineering and science.
have recently formed a task force to develop recommendations concerning
how ASEE can coordinate and enhance efforts to promote science and
mathematics among K-12 students. As a country, we need to graduate
more engineers; to do this, we must have a larger pool of students
graduating from high school with sufficient math and science skills
to enter our programs. A major focus of this task force is on how
to help minority K-12 students to be ready for our engineering programs.
is also increasing its international presence, and we are being
asked to participate in and co-sponsor an increasing number of international
meetings with engineering education organizations in Europe and
Asia. In September 2001, ASEE will cosponsor a conference
in Berlin with the European Society for Engineering Education
and the Technical University Berlin, focusing on global changes
in engineering education.
the year 2000 Annual
Meeting in St. Louis, a new multimedia session was introduced.
Presenters in these sessions made short presentations augmented
by various multimedia devices, and then were available to talk to
interested participants after their presentations. These sessions
were very popular, and their number has been increased for the year
2001 annual meeting in Albuquerque.
you have never attended an ASEE annual meeting, you have missed
a chance to meet others with teaching concerns similar to your own,
to find out about innovative and effective ways to motivate students,
to learn how to explain difficult concepts, to demonstrate principles,
and to leverage your teaching and research efforts. I encourage
every reader to attend this year's meeting in Albuquerque,
New Mexico, June 24-27. Registration materials are available on
