Engineering dean named to ASEE Hall of Fame

Dr. Jenna Carpenter, founding dean of Campbell University’s School of Engineering, was named as a member of the American Society for Engineering Education’s 2023 Hall of Fame class. 

Members of ASEE’s Hall of Fame are considered “standouts whose work has made a significant impact” on the world engineering education. 

Carpenter, who launched Campbell’s program and its hands-on, project-based approach in 2016, is the immediate past president of the ASEE. Her school earned a Bronze Award from the ASEE Diversity Recognition Program this year, and in 2019, Carpenter was awarded ASEE’s Sharon Keillor Award for Women in Engineering. 

“It is an incredible honor to be selected as a member of this group that has greatly impacted engineering and engineering technology education,” said Carpenter. 

ASEE is celebrating its 130th year in 2013. The organization announced this year’s Hall of Fame 22 individual (and three team) inductees at the ASEE Gala in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 10.
