Fran Ligler, a core faculty member and Lampe Distinguished Professor, has been chosen as a councillor for the National Academy of Engineering (NAE). The academy membership chooses its council members, who serve three-year terms. Six officers (chair, president, vice president, home secretary, foreign secretary, and treasurer) and twelve councillors comprise the NAE Council. The group is responsible for the general policies and programs of the NAE and for the control of all funds administered by the academy. A list of current council members can be found on the NAE Website. Dr. Ligler will begin her tenure as councillor on July 1, 2014.
In its 50th year, the National Academy of Engineering is an elite society for engineers the world over. Election to academy membership alone is one of the highest distinctions in the field. Please join the department in offering Dr. Ligler your most sincere congratulations on this well-earned honor!
