Resolve Magazine: Volume 1, 2016

The Broader Impact

Welcome to the Spring 2016 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.

As I think about the future of Lehigh engineering, I am grateful for the recent establishment of the Charles ’57 (industrial engineering) ’15GP ’19GP and Nan Strauch Endowed Deanshipfor our College. Charles and Nan Strauch have given generously to education throughout their lives, supporting innovative programs at Lehigh, at other institutions of higher education, and at K-12 charter schools. Their latest gift of $5.5 million will help support initiatives across the College. We greatly appreciate their vote of confidence in our mission. The feature story in this issue of Resolve explores cutting-edge research into resilient infrastructure. In addition to buildings, bridges and other structures, the term infrastructuretoday includes systems such as energy generation and distribution, communications and networking, transportation and water treatment.
