He will be recognized at the 2012 ASEE Annual Conference and Exposition in San Antonio June 10-13.
Froyd previously served as project director for the Foundation Coalition, an NSF Engineering Education Coalition in which six institutions systematically renewed, assessed, and institutionalized their undergraduate engineering curricula, and extensively shared their results with the engineering education community. He co-created the Integrated, First-Year Curriculum in Science, Engineering and Mathematics at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, which was recognized in 1997 with a Hesburgh Award Certificate of Excellence. He also served as project director for Changing Faculty through Learning Communities, which was intended to create compelling learning experiences for faculty members on gender equity.
