Review of College of Engineering

Collegiate Review, Fall 2016

University of Iowa policy requires that all colleges undergo regular reviews at least every seven years (Operations Manual, Part II 28.2). To comply with this policy, I directed a committee to review the College of Engineering in Fall 2016. The committee was asked to review the following three "pillars" of the UI Strategic Plan: Research and Discovery; Student Success; and Engagement. A draft of the review was shared with you earlier in the spring semester and I want to thank all of you who provided comments and suggestions. The final review document is now complete and has been submitted to the College of Engineering administration and the Office of the President.

The review commends the College on its many successful efforts in support of the strategic plan and the University generally. I want to express my sincere appreciation to all of the faculty and staff in the College who contribute to those efforts. Your work not only makes The University of Iowa a better place, it improves the lives of Iowans and others around the world. Keep up the good work!
