University President Jared Cohon Named Distinguished Member of ASCE
Jared Cohon, President of Carnegie Mellon University, has been named a Distinguished Member of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). Those elected to this highest grade of membership have attained acknowledged eminence in their field and have contributed to the public's welfare. Only a handful of engineers are elected to the level of Distinguished Member each year and we are very proud to have our President, also a faculty member in CEE, be recognized in this manner.
President Cohon is recognized for his exemplary career as educator, researcher and administrator, most notably his water resource systems analysis research, leadership of national committees on critical environment and energy issues, regional leadership of water infrastructure improvements, and inspired leadership of Carnegie Mellon University. President Cohon will be inducted officially on October 29 in Kansas City at the 2009 ASCE Convention.
Congratulations, President Cohon, on receiving this well deserved and prestigious recognition!
