Maryland Beta Outreach, ASEE Teaching Award, & Ratification Ballot (March 2018)

The Maryland Beta Chapter of Tau Beta Pi, at the University of Maryland, sent a team of members to spend their spring break with Habitat for Humanity. The group traveled to Concord, North Carolina, to help build a home for a family in need.

Several images from the trip were posted to MD Beta’s Facebook page, including the one above. Allison Grabowski, MD B 2018, the MD Beta Chapter vice president was among those on the trip.


Teaching associate professor and academic advisor for Fundamentals of Engineering Melissa L. Morris, Ph.D. (WV A ’06), has been named a recipient of the North Central Section Outstanding Teaching Award from the American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE). Dr. Morris serves as the chief advisor to the West Virginia Alpha Chapter of Tau Beta Pi and TBP District 4 Director.

According to the announcement, the award “recognizes teachers of engineering student who exhibit outstanding classroom performance and serves as an incentive for educators to make further significant contributions to their profession.”
