Resolve Magazine: Volume 1, 2014

A Singular Mission and Space

Welcome to the Spring 2014 issue of Resolve—a magazine dedicated to research and educational innovation in the P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science at Lehigh University.

It is with mixed feelings that I write to you for the last time in this space. I have been appointed provost and executive vice president of George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, and I will be leaving Lehigh this summer. I am thrilled and excited to start the next phase of my career at George Mason. But I will miss Lehigh dearly. After almost three decades here, I owe my sincere gratitude to the mentors, colleagues, students and friends with whom I have worked side by side to build something truly special and distinctive.

Together, I believe we have made a real and positive impact on the lives of young people. The remarkable support from my colleagues has made it possible to work toward a bold vision—of engineering as Renaissance thinking for the era of technology, and of the engineer as Renaissance person for the 21st century.
