NC State Alumni Panel, Convention Ratification Ballot, & WPI Beyond the Classroom (Nov. 2018)

Jenna P. Carpenter, Ph.D. (IN A ’83), posted an image to Twitter from an alumni panel on November 14 at NC State University. The panel of alumni, organized by the Research Triangle Alumni Chapter, spoke about the transition from being an undergraduate to becoming an engineering professional.

Dr. Carpenter is Dean of Engineering at Campbell University and serves as president of the Research Triangle Alumni Chapter. She captioned her image with: “Great panel of Tau Beta Pi alums at the @TauBetaPi NC Alpha Chapter Meeting @NCState! Thanks for hosting us!! #TBPResearchTriangle.”


The Ratification Ballot from the 2018 Convention is now available. This is a graded report for collegiate chapters and a necessary report for alumni chapters to vote on. There are nine Constitutional amendments that require ratification. The deadline to submit this report is April 1, 2019.

Be sure to read the accompanying overview presentation with explanations for all amendments. It is required that your chapter meet the quorum requirements in order for your ballot to be valid.


Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) published a news story profiling professor and chemical engineering department head Susan C. Roberts, Ph.D. (MA A ’92) and her activity outside of the classroom. Dr. Roberts coaches her daughter’s flag football team of 7 to 9 year olds.

She is the only female coach in the Wachusett League and recently completed her second year leading the co-ed team. Her daughter, Emmelyn, loves having mom as a coach to prove that “girls can do anything boys can do.” Click here to read the article.
