Coming Soon: Indiana Tech School of Law AEP and Indiana Tech Partner in Energy Education Volume 7, Issue 3 / Summer 2011 The Magazine for Students, Alumni & Friends Alumni Weekend: Homecoming 2011 commencement congratulations class of 2011 Letter from the President Greetings, This is a time of great opportunity for Indiana Tech. In one sense, opportunity is part of the annual cycle of academic life. In the fall, we welcome new students who are about to embark on an educational journey full of opportunity. In the spring, we celebrate the accomplishments of our graduates as they explore new opportunities for careers or further education. Various awards and honors celebrations lead up to the biggest celebration of them all: our annual Commencement. About 830 students earned degrees from Indiana Tech this year, and about 600 of them (from campus locations throughout the state) were able to join us for the ceremony in Fort Wayne. Our keynote speaker, Dr. Lauren DungyPoythress, offered moving yet humorous advice to our students to remember that they were born to be successful. Many of the highlights of the ceremony were captured in photos found on Pages 8�9. The university is also on the brink of a quantum leap for us in terms of the opportunity to become a more comprehensive, regionally prominent university. On May 16, we announced our plans to establish a law school in Fort Wayne! The opening of this school, with enrollment of the first class slated for fall 2013, will be a giant leap forward after many incremental steps. I am very excited about the challenges and opportunities Indiana Tech's School of Law will bring in the coming years. Look for more information on Pages 18�19. In my role as president, I often meet and talk with alumni and community members who marvel at how Indiana Tech has grown and evolved over the years. Our strong engineering programs--including cutting edge offerings such as biomedical, energy, and software engineering--are now complemented by degrees in education, business, criminal sciences, and more. If you haven't seen us lately, I urge you to consider a visit for Homecoming this fall. It's a great opportunity to learn about our progress while connecting with friends. Look for this year's schedule on Pages 26�29. Thank you for your continued support. Sincerely, Dr. Arthur E.

Volume 7, Issue 3 Summer 2011 7 Commencement 2011 Congratulations>Class>of>2011! Indiana Tech celebrated the accomplishments of hundreds of students at the university's 90th Commencement on Saturday, May 14. For the full academic year, from fall 2010 through summer 2011, Indiana Tech will award 830 degrees. About 600 students participated in the May ceremony. The university holds one ceremony each year honoring all graduates from Indiana Tech locations throughout the state and online. Words of Advice Dr. Lauren Dungy-Poythress, one of the nation's leading perinatologists, gave the keynote speech at Commencement and encouraged graduates to believe in themselves as they consider their next move in life. Dr. Dungy-Poythress is the medical director of maternal-fetal medicine for Community Health Network of Indianapolis. Her speech was both humorous and thoughtful as she referred to somewhat unexpected sources for inspiration, from Simba of "The Lion King" to Adrian Monk of the TV show "Monk" to biblical figures such as David and Joshua. The thread that wove them together was a triumph over setbacks or challenges. 8 Dr. Dungy-Poythress urged graduates to be strong and courageous, always remembering that they were born to be successful. "If you believe in yourself that you can do something, don't let anyone convince you you can't," she told them in the spirit of David slaying Goliath. After her speech, Dr. Dungy-Poythress was awarded a Doctor of Humane Letters, an honorary degree. of the Year. The winner is then chosen by a panel of students representing both traditional students and those in the College of Professional Studies. The 2010�11 winner was Susan McGrade, associate professor of English. Students who nominated McGrade wrote about how she instilled in them a passion for reading and took a personal interest in their success. "Even after the course, she was there for me," one student wrote. Top Prof Each year the university asks students to submit nominations for Faculty Member Trends "Go forth in the world and do good things." -- Dr. Arthur E. Snyder Volume 7, Issue 3 Summer 2011 9 Editor's Note: As president of Indiana Tech, Dr. Arthur E. Snyder faces decisions of varying importance and complexity on a daily basis. In this essay, he shares his philosophy on problem solving. How Good is "Good Enough?" By Arthur E. Snyder, Ed.D. People and organizations that pursue opportunities to achieve goals and solve difficult problems often find the road to success daunting. Seeking perfection, while admirable, is hardly practical in most cases. Moreover, optimizing individual and organizational problem-solving is an elusive goal. It often leads to frustration, and when it does we often settle for "good enough." Is it possible that "good enough" is really the lowest acceptable level of preparation or performance for decision making? It seems unlikely that "good enough" will lead to innovative ideas, constructive and topnotch solutions to problems, or breakthrough products or services. So why is it apparently so pervasive in everyday life? Surely we can't expect a high level of success if our aim is so low as to hit "good enough." What we can expect is to just get by, or gross mediocrity. "Good enough" doesn't take much effort--and it probably isn't worth much at that! So then, there must be a place between "good enough" and perfection. The idea of doing work or facing challenges with 10 the mindset of "good enough" as the outcome isn't part of our culture at Indiana Tech. We have an important responsibility to live up to a set of standards that our students deserve. Yet, knowing how much time and effort to dedicate to a project isn't always an easy, straightforward matter. Nevertheless, in my view we have done a very good job focusing on both effectiveness and efficiency. Herbert Simon (1955) coined the term "satisficing" to represent a combination of meaning from the words satisfy and suffice. He views satisficing as a problem-solving routine or process "through which an individual decides when an alternative approach or solution is sufficient to meet the individuals' desired goals rather than pursue the perfect approach" (Simon, 1971, p. 71). Ideally, decision makers should take into account all applicable solution alternatives until they arrive at an optimal outcome. In reality this is unlikely to occur and is theoretical at best. We all seem to agree to the many advantages and challenges of the information age, the availability and volumi- Trends nous nature of data, and the issues of validity and reliability of secondary research. Constrained by time, resources, and financial limitations there is good reason to "satisfice." After all, we can't search resources endlessly for that one nugget of information that may change our paradigm. How do we know when to stop searching? The answer is hidden in the way humans assess the information they find along the research trail and how they evaluate whether it is enough to satisfy their specific need. According to Byron (2004), scholars from a variety of fields of study see the "satisficing" method as a "contrast between choosing what is satisfactory and choosing what is best." I understand Byron's assertion, but I don't entirely agree. Byron implies that if enough time is spent on a particular problem or area of research there will be an optimum result. The flaw in this thinking is the time and attention factor and the interval in which the benefit of the solution can be achieved. In other words, it is possible to research past the point of greatest value thereby resulting in a diminished return. Subtle as it may appear to some, I believe there is a difference between a "good enough" approach and "satisficing." "Good enough" connotes accepting the first solution without ample consideration for alternatives. "Satisficing" suggests that the relevant constraints be considered and a plan of action employed thereafter. For example, a student required to submit a term paper will take into account the number of weeks available to prepare the paper, the grading criteria and overall value to the course grading components. Perhaps he or she will count the minimum num- ber of resource citations required and use this measure as the trigger point to cease researching. These among other constraints present possible quantitative factors. In this scenario the qualitative research stopping point may occur when the student encounters the same or similar information repeated in several sources. While this example uses a common student "satisficing" example, we all are prone to limit or expand information search and consideration. The criteria for such expansion or limitation should be the importance and value of the decision and the need to have multiple alternative solutions or decision paths. I do this every day; you probably do too. Our university faculty and staff have committed to the growth and development of Indiana Tech with great vigor. As an institution of educators, we have committed to continuous improvement, not just as a popular mantra but as a dogma. We have taken on long term challenging projects as well as shorter term, relatively "easy to address" improvements. For both the long and short term we have positively altered the way we teach and support our students and one another. When necessary, we have studied matters deeply to reduce the uncertainty and risk of our most important decisions. Along the way we have had a bias for action. And yes, we have made some mistakes as well. But when all is said and done, I am one among us who believes we have "satisficed" with great precision...and "good enough" has never been good enough for any one of us.

Volume 7, Issue 3 Summer 2011 11 CPS Serving More Students Than Ever Additions>and>changes>to>locations,> programs>broaden>reach The growth in Indiana Tech's traditional program is easy to see with the construction of more campus housing, the addition of new athletic teams, and planning for a new academic center. Growth in the College of Professional Studies is just as strong, and the evidence is spread throughout the state and beyond. Crossingtheborder The university is preparing to expand to Louisville, Ky.--the first satellite campus outside of Indiana. The state of Kentucky must approve Indiana Tech's application for a license to offer classes there, and that approval is expected within the next month or so. Munster The timing of the move depends on the renovation schedule, but classes will probably be relocated for Session 2 or 3. MSEgoesonline In addition to growth at satellite campuses, online program offerings are also expanding. CPS will begin offering the master's degree in engineering management online in September. The Master of Science in Engineering Management (MSE) explores issues that face engineers in a variety of fields as they assume more managerial responsibilities. The program uses the expertise gained through an undergraduate degree in engineering or a related field as a base for further education. "This is obviously a big step for us, growing beyond Indiana," said Steve Herendeen, vice president of CPS. "Based on demographic research and demand for higher education in that area, we think the metropolitan Louisville area will be really receptive to our accelerated degree programs." Indiana Tech-Louisville will be located at 11853 Commonwealth Drive and will likely open in early September. Admissions representatives will be hired and trained during the summer to prepare for enrolling students in classes expected to start in fall or winter. OnthemoveinWarsaw The College of Professional Studies first offered classes in Warsaw in 1999, and then moved to its existing location on North Pointe Drive in 2005 to accommodate enrollment growth. Now it's time to move to a bigger location as enrollment continues to climb. Plans are under way to renovate a building at 2928 Frontage Road in Warsaw, near the intersection of U.S. 30 and Center Street. The university first offered the MSE program at its main campus in Fort Wayne in January 2005. The shift to online delivery will make it available to more students. "We've had quite a bit of interest in this program throughout the state," Herendeen said. "Online delivery allows us to serve students who don't live near our main campus, while giving all of the students in the program more flexibility to balance work and graduate school." HealthITdegreecoming In response to demand for a program related to health care, CPS will soon launch an associate degree in health information technology. Health information technology is an area in the healthcare industry that uses computer systems to compile, manage, and communicate patient health information. It combines medicine, information management and computer technology to provide a comprehensive system of healthcare management. "This location will give us more classroom space and will be easier for students to find," Herendeen explained. 12 "Health care is certainly a growing field, and a lot of prospective students have been disappointed Trends New Albany LOUISVILLE CollegeofProfessionalStudieslocations er Mishawaka Elkhart Kendallville Main Campus Auxiliary Campus Indiana Tech Facility WARSAW Huntington Fort Wayne Class Locations and physiology, health data requirements and standards, clinical classification and coding systems, data analysis, healthcare reimbursement methods, database security and management, and quality improvement methods.

Collegeprepexpanding Along with more and larger locations and expanded degree programs, CPS is also expanding its free college preparation program for adult students. Fishers Indianapolis Plainfield Greenwood Shelbyville Camp Atterbury Free college preparation courses in English, math, and computer basics were first offered by Indiana Tech in Munster. The success of those courses led to plans for expansion to the main campus in Fort Wayne and CPS satellite locations throughout the state, funded by an $18,000 grant from the Ball Venture Fund. "We've found that one of the biggest fears among adult students is whether they can handle college coursework," Herendeen said. "English, math and computer use seem to be their biggest concerns." Plans are to offer the math and English courses in a two-hour format once a week for four weeks and the computer course in a two-hour format once a week for two weeks, but exact times and dates will vary depending on the site. Students may take as many of the free courses as they wish. Registrations will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. "This is a unique approach to helping adults explore the idea of returning to school," Steve Herendeen added.

Snyder recently announced the university's boldest step yet: the establishment of an Indiana Tech School of Law. The Board of Trustees unanimously approved a proposal to move forward with establishing a law school in Fort Wayne after presentation of a feasibility study on May 13. Snyder announced the decision in a staff meeting and news conference on May 16. "We haven't had a new law school open in Indiana since 1894," Snyder said. "It's about time we did." tion. Indiana Tech could offer the nation's first combined juris doctorate-master of science in leadership. The number of lawyers in Indiana: The state is under-served in terms of the number of lawyers relative to the state's population and economic activity. Indiana residents attending law school out-ofstate: About half of all Indiana residents who enroll at American Bar Association-approved law schools do so out-of-state. The university immediately began a search for a dean to lead development of the academic program and pursuit of accreditation by the American Bar Association in accordance with the Standards for Approval of Law Schools. University leaders had been exploring the idea of a law school for about a year. In February, the board gave its approval for a formal feasibility study. The study explored the demand for legal education, the job market for individuals with a "We'll be moving forward to hire a founding dean law degree, the university's capability of providimmediately," Snyder said. "This is a very imporing a unique educational experience in the field of tant decision for us.

"The third year of law school offers a great deal of opportunity to build in practical learning that doesn't always happen in traditional law school," Snyder said. The feasibility study noted that combining a law degree with Tech's Master of Science in Organizational Leadership would create a highly attractive option for law students: "Leadership theory and practice could provide a key to building a distinctive program at Indiana Tech. Indeed, many legal educators have been advocating for leadership training in legal education for some time without realizing it; they've just lacked a unifying theory to explain what they were doing.... Indiana Tech possesses unusual positioning with respect to leadership education, offering both a master's degree in organizational leadership and a Ph.D. in global leadership. Since the ABA only requires that 45,000 of its required 58,000 minutes of instruction time be regularly scheduled at the law school, it should be possible for Indiana Tech students to obtain joint JD-MSOL degrees in three years..." Such a program might have particularly strong appeal for students who want a law school education but do not intend to practice law. "About 10 percent of law school graduates today never practice law in the traditional sense; they go on to do other things," Snyder explained. "But a law school education is an excellent education. There's probably no better education to learn how to critically think and develop thought processes that lead to solutions." Other academic possibilities include specializations in intellectual property and patent law or international law. There are currently 200 ABA-approved law schools in the nation. Of those, 17 have been established since 2000. The two most recently established (in 2009) are in the process of ABA accreditation: University of California-Irvine School of Law and the Duncan School of Law at Lincoln Memorial University in Knoxville, Tenn.

That's a question often on the mind these days, and Indiana Tech's energy engineering students and professors are working on the answer. Now, AEP is the university's latest partner in the search. Indiana Tech was awarded a grant of $300,000 from the American Electric Power Foundation to support the energy engineering degree program. The check was presented to President Arthur Snyder by Dr. Paul Chodak, III, president and chief operating officer of Indiana Michigan Power, a utility operating unit of American Electric Power, which also funds the foundation. "I am very pleased to present this gift," Chodak said at a ceremony on April 25, attended by AEP and university officials, as well as students, faculty, and staff. "The AEP Foundation is proud to be able to assist Indiana Tech in developing and enhancing education for their students in the area of energy engineering." 20 The gift will be used to support curriculum, faculty, and laboratory development for the university's Bachelor of Science in Energy Engineering, which was launched in 2008 and is based in a state-of-the-art energy engineering laboratory in the Zollner Engineering Center. The degree focuses on sustainable energy sources such as wind, solar, geothermal, biofuels and fuel cells, and also includes a business component to prepare students in analyzing the cost savings of various energy options and designs. A $300,000 grant from the Steel Dynamics Foundation in 2009 helped establish the program's lab, and the AEP grant will provide for even more enhancement to the program. "The field of energy engineering is a new one, and it's developing quickly. It's exciting for Indiana Tech to be recognized as one of the leaders in educating students in this field, and our enrollment in the program is growing fast," Snyder commented. "As new technologies emerge, we will need to keep pace. The AEP Foundation gift will enable us to continue to expand both in Trends the number of students admitted to the program and the means to educate them. We are very grateful for the support." The grant will allow the university to keep software and equipment updated for students to use in the classroom in a hands-on, real-life experiential way. The new types of jobs in the field of energy engineering will require that Indiana Tech keep up with the developments by also adding new courses and updating existing courses as needed. Careful planning as the degree program was created has allowed flexibility in credit hours to accomplish this. The grant funds also will provide faculty with training opportunities to keep them abreast of new equipment, research findings, and instructional resources. "The challenge with curriculum for any energy engineering program is that the field is so new that there simply aren't many textbooks for it yet," explained Dave Aschliman, dean of the College of Engineering and Computer Sciences. "For example, there are no textbooks at all about batteries or wind power. This means our faculty have to draw upon other types of documents to create instructional materials that are of a high level in terms of technical content, and our professors do an outstanding job of that." students beyond understanding systems and equipment as they currently exist to recommending ways to improve them. That is why partnerships with companies in the energy industry, like AEP, are so valuable. These experts can offer suggestions for course work. As students and professors explore how to better combine components to achieve maximum efficiency in production, storage and delivery of energy, they will take a deeper look at design impact. For example, they will consider such questions as: What is the ideal size of panels and storage tanks? What is the ideal temperature to recirculate the water in an alternative system? Energy sources, and a corresponding need for energy engineers, will prove ever more valuable as environmental awareness increases and more companies adapt energy efficient practices, as Indiana Tech has done. The AEP gift and what it makes possible are the most recent steps in Tech's focus on sustainable energy. In 2009, a $1.34 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy funded the university's geothermal conversion project. In 2010, a $2 million gift from alumnus Wilfred Uytengsu, Sr. provided for the energy efficient renovation of the administration center, achieving LEED� (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold Level certification. Also in 2010, a grant from the State of Indiana Office of Energy Development allowed Tech to replace the lighting in the Schaefer Center gymnasium with energy efficient LED lights. The university also has a Sustainability Team and many green practices in place.

Some of the resources used to create teaching materials include manufacturers' manuals and handbooks, which provide excellent operational information but no instructional elements such as lessons, questions, homework assignments or additional resources. Other resources may provide background on theory, but again, these are not textbooks. Faculty development funds will allow professors to research and network effectively to continually adapt instructional materials and methods as new technologies and "Our commitment to energy efficiency learning resources are developed. reduces costs and helps protect natural resources.

These days, no matter what the industry or profession, the emphasis is on working together with a group toward your common goal. That philosophy is driving a change in education too. The days of students sitting quietly at their desks all day listening to lectures, memorizing facts, and studying in isolation have given way to a more collaborative, questioning mode of education known as Project-Based Learning, or PBL.

They will coordinate lesson plans around a learning unit, so that the students will approach different subject matter via a common experience. Istheentiredayspentin teamsthen? No, students still develop the discipline to work alone and focus on individual tasks assigned to them. But they know they are part of a larger whole, and their team will need their input.

Let's take NASA's Apollo 13 mission that had to be aborted due to damage to the space capsule. An 8th-grade science teacher may have students divide into groups to create a digital representation of the solar system, build a model indicating the placement of the ship between the Earth and our moon, and study the causes of the explosion. The social studies teacher may have students analyze history by downloading 1970 broadcasts and newspaper accounts of the day and then have various teams compare how Twitter, Facebook, and Google impact cultural reaction to disasters today. The math teacher may have students diagram the trajectory of the ship's return and calculate the time factors. Then student groups may select aspects of their findings to develop into presentations for the class, as the language arts and computer teachers guide them in writing, public speaking, and the use of Word and PowerPoint software. It gives the students a more complete understanding, while honing skills in all disciplines. workshop at Tech where they'll gain three distinct advantages: They will learn the pedagogy of project-based learning. They will construct lesson plans and kits to take back and use in their classrooms. They will build a network of PBLtrained professionals. An additional benefit for the teachers is that they will receive either one graduate credit toward their master's degree or a continuing education credit toward their professional development requirement. Our PBL workshop gives participants the opportunity to learn and apply the principles of project-based learning by doing it themselves, as students. I teach the pedagogy, and Dr. Steve Hundersmarck leads them through hands-on exploration of basic forensic crime scene analysis procedures so they grasp the implementation of PBL. The teachers enjoy it because it's interactive and based on our crime analysis degree program. CSI in the real world. HowwillTechstudents benefit? This is what is so incredibly unique about Indiana Tech's approach to education. Our current students who are studying to become teachers actually help with the presentation of the workshop, as well as attend it. Then, when our current teacher participants go back to their classrooms in the fall, our students will help them implement PBL in their schools. Not only does this strengthen our connections and working relationships with area school corporations, but this is a fantastic way for our students to be fully immersed in PBL training and be placed in classrooms where they will have solid mentoring from current professionals. When they graduate, they will hit the ground running! WhatistheSTEMconnectionwiththegrant? There is a strong focus, especially in northeast Indiana, on STEM education [science, technology, engineering, and math]. The Talent Initiative is an organization based in Fort Wayne that is really working to increase STEM education and PBL, and we have emphasized STEM education through the way our summer PBL workshop is constructed. Indiana Tech received a grant of $50,000 from the Talent Initiative to support the camp for two years. We can accommodate 30 teachers this summer and another 30 next summer, plus our pre-service teacher education students. The grant will pay for them all to attend for free. The teachers must be from an 11-county area of northeast Indiana, and then take what they've learned back to their schools and implement STEM-focused PBL there. Whatistheresponsefrom teachersintheregion? We've heard so many teachers say they want to come to our workshop, and available space filled fast. Other colleges are offering PBL training too, but most of them have a canned program. Teachers are saying that they find our creative approach a breath of fresh air. They're excited about PBL and about our ideas for making STEM education interesting at all grade levels. This summer, our workshop is for K�8 teachers; in the future we expect teachers for grades 9�12 to participate too. This year the focus is through CSI. Next year, it will be in a different area but still with a STEM emphasis. And if the workshops continue in years after that, we'll make sure those are engaging too. Students have to be accountable, not just for themselves, but also to their team. Timeliness, accuracy, and other skill sets are embedded in the approach; they intertwine. PBL is student generated, but it is also standards-driven for the teachers. Howwilltheworkshophelp currentteachers? PBL is considered a "best practice" in education. Indiana Tech professors use it in our courses here. It is rigorous. But the goal is to also make it so engaging, so fun, that students want to learn and teachers enjoy teaching. In order to have a strong grasp of how to implement the methodology, especially integrating it with each other's classrooms, teachers in northeast Indiana's elementary, middle, and high schools can attend a summer It's a win for everyone. Volume 7, Issue 3 Summer 2011 23 Construction D�j� Vu For the fourth consecutive year, Indiana Tech's enrollment growth has led to the construction of a new residence facility. Warrior Row B, the second of the university's townhousestyle buildings, will be completed in time for students returning in August. Like the original Warrior Row facility, which was built in 2010, Warrior Row B will consist of several three-story units. Each townhouse unit will have its own front and back entrances; a full kitchen, living area, and bathroom on the first floor; and bedrooms and bathrooms on the second and third floors. Warrior Row B will house 45 students. Warrior Row is intended for sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Residents are selected based on grade point average, extra-curricular activities, and class status. Students interested in living in Warrior Row must apply as a group. Indiana Tech Alumnus Involved in Award-Winning Engineering Project A recent project to increase the reliability of the Three Rivers Water Filtration Plant in Fort Wayne was recognized for Engineering Excellence by the American Council for Engineering Companies (ACEC) in Indiana. Indiana Tech alumnus, Mark Gensic, BSCE 1974, played an instrumental role in the successful design and completion of this impressive project. Gensic works for the Fort Wayne City Utilities Planning and Design group which was tasked with updating and replacing the original electrical facilities and pumps from the 1930s. It was quite a complex process as they had to maintain the plant electrical systems while they worked to replace the pumps, cables, and electrical equipment. The plant helps produce safe drinking water in addition to water for fire protection. This is the master pump station which supplies all of the feeder stations throughout the city's water distribution system. It was critical, therefore, that the construction would, at no point during the process, cause disruption of water service. Gensic stated that this was a fun but difficult task. "It was pretty cool to drill holes in the side of the 1933 reservoir, but the organization of this project was the key to accomplishing it with great success," he said. Each phase of this undertaking was carefully designed and planned so that the contractor would be informed of each step throughout the process. It was this careful planning that led to the high praise and recognition from the ACEC. The ability of the City of Fort Wayne and its design and construction partners to maintain the operation of the plant during the modernization project was very impressive. The ACEC was also impressed with the consideration given to design and construction needed to maintain the original Collegiate Gothic architectural style of the plant, which helps this structure remain a downtown Fort Wayne landmark. In fact, this architectural consideration earned this project a second award from ARCH, Fort Wayne's historic preservation organization. When the Three Rivers Water Filtration Plant was originally constructed in 1933 at the confluence of Fort Wayne's three rivers, 24 million gallons of water per day was the top capacity it could produce. Today, after two expansions in 1955 and 1981, the per day capacity has increased to 72 million gallons. Treated water from this plant is pumped out to more than 250,000 customers in Fort Wayne. Tom Henry, mayor of Fort Wayne, said that great drinking water and water for fire protection are top priorities for the city, and improving the reliability of this plant will only enhance the city's ability to attract and retain businesses. The mayor was quoted in Fort Wayne Extra as stating, "This is a great outcome for a very challenging project, and I'm pleased to see our design and construction team being honored for this achievement." 24 Trends More Awards for the Uytengsu Center The awards just keep coming for the Wilfred Uytengsu, Sr. Center. As detailed in our spring issue of Trends, Indiana Tech received notification in December that the building had been awarded LEED� (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold Certification. That's a very prestigious recognition of the remarkable transformation of the administration building constructed in 1857 into a modern, energy efficient "smart building," but additional honors have poured in: On May 5, the Building Contractors Association (BCA) named the Uytengsu Center the recipient of the Excellence in Construction Award. On May 12, the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers awarded the center First Place Honors in ASHRAE's Energy Efficiency Design Contest. On May 26, the Northeast Indiana Green Build Coalition awarded the center the Green Innovation Award. Also, the architect for the Uytengsu Center renovation, Terry Thornsbury of Viridian Architectural Design, Inc. of Fort Wayne, and the mechanical engineer, Mike Lubbehusen of Primary Engineering in Fort Wayne, completed a technical paper on the renovation project and will likely be selected by the International Conference for ASHRAE for presentation of their paper at the organization's Chicago conference in January 2012. The conference is a very large gathering, attended by more than 50,000 people. Several technical presentations are made throughout the week, with attendance of 1,000 to 5,000 or more in each. Obviously, the word is getting around in the construction community about the unique nature of this successful project. Industry experts find it an inspiration and leading example of environmental sustainability and architectural preservation. And there's yet another award connected to the Uytengsu Center: "Green Renovation: New Life for a 19th Century Building," the PBS documentary about the renovation, has won the prestigious Telly Award. The Telly Awards honor the best video and film productions aired on local, regional and cable television. The 31st Annual Telly Awards received more than 13,000 entries from all 50 states and five continents. The program is a fascinating look at the history of Indiana Tech and Fort Wayne and the exciting process of converting the 19th century building into a living laboratory for 21st century education. If you haven't seen the documentary, you can request a complimentary DVD from Mike Peterson, director of alumni relations, at 800-937-2448, ext. 2418 or mepeterson@ indianatech.edu. If you haven't had the opportunity to see the building and its Welcome Center with Indiana Tech artifacts contributed by alumni, we hope you'll visit soon.
