I am pleased to announce the first of our monthly Faculty Social Hours, a series that is making its long-awaited return this semester. At our first event, we will be recognizing the recent accomplishments of two members of our Faculty: Sarah Kurtz, for her election to the National Academy of Engineering and her designation as a Fellow in the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers; and Jessica Trounstine, for being named to the 2022 Class of Andrew Carnegie Fellows.
