About

Faculty members often make substantial informal contributions to departments other than their own. These contributions are sometimes recognized by means of courtesy appointments. The Department of Civil, Environmental and Geodetic Engineering invited Dr. Chen to become a courtesy associate professor in our department because she brings expertise that makes us a stronger unit.
