NJ Alumni Panel Opportunity, STEM Advocate Award, & ODU President Luncheon

There is a last minute opportunity for Tau Bates in New Jersey. On Saturday, February 10, at 10 a.m., the New Jersey Alpha Chapter of Tau Beta Pi, at Stevens Institute of Technology is hosting an alumni Q&A panel for its members. There are still three spots available for alumni panelists. If you are interested in serving on the panel, please contact TBP Director of Alumni Affairs Tricia Gomulinski as soon as possible.

You do not need to be a graduate of Stevens to serve on the panel. We are encouraging the students to ask the panelists questions about their experiences, opinions, and interests. We will provide further information like the panel location on campus, parking info, and potential questions to those who are interested.


The 2018 recipient of the Department of Defense (DOD) Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math Advocate Award is John DiCecco, Ph.D. (RI B ’04), an engineer at Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) Division Newport. According to the announcement, the award honors “individuals that demonstrate exemplary support of STEM education and outreach across DOD.”

Dr. DiCecco has established an extensive collaborative relationship with NUWC Newports’ Education Outreach Program in realizing the mission of community outreach. He judges local science fairs, SeaPerch, and robotics competitions. Dr. DiCecco also designed and developed the Undersea Technology Apprentice Program. His B.S., M.S., and Ph.D., engineering degrees are from the University of Rhode Island.
