DEAN'S NOTE

Dear Lehigh Engineers,

As the winter begins to release its grip on South Mountain, there is plenty more good news to share with our colleagues and friends.

I am pleased to extend to you an open invitation to the 2016 David and Lorraine Freed Undergraduate Research Symposium. To be held March 30 in the STEPS Building lobby, this event is made possible by another EAC member, Drew Freed '83, in honor of his parents. Student-competitors from Lehigh Engineering and their peers from Lafayette will showcase research projects and compete for prizes that will enhance their research – so please stop by, and be sure to cast your vote for the coveted "People's Choice" Award!

As you review the following stories from around our community, please also stay tuned for the next issue of Resolve magazine,which will explore cutting-edge research into resilient infrastructure that resists, responds, and recovers from whatever man or nature hurtles its way. It is no longer sufficient for structures and systems merely to withstand disasters and protect people’s lives; they must also resume operating quickly, and safely, following a disaster.

Thank you as always for your support of Lehigh Engineering.

Sincerely,
dean's signature
John P. Coulter
Interim Dean
