Purposeful Work: Students Talk about Local and Global Responsibilities

At AAC&U's Diversity, Learning, and Inclusive Excellence meeting in October 2010, Dean Richard Vaz and students David Arnold and Evan Sawyer of Worcester Polytechnic Institute reflected on how local and international engineering projects help students integrate and apply their learning. A podcast of the presentation, as well as of other conference plenaries, is available at http://www.aacu.org/Podcast/podcasts.cfm?id=150.
