Congratulations to Donny Katz and Brittany Luken, two graduate students of the Georgia Transportation Institute/University Transportation Center (GTI/UTC) who were recently named Eno Fellows and will attend the upcoming 2011 Eno Leadership Development Conference.
Katz is a doctoral student in civil and environmental engineering, and Brittany Luken is a joint degree student in civil engineering and industrial and systems engineering. Both students will attend the one week conference in Washington D.C. The Eno Leadership Conference introduces students to the intricacies of policy development in transportation and provides opportunities for students to meet transportation leaders from across the country.
GTI/UTC has a long history of sending its students to the leadership conference, and several of its faculty members are alumni of the program. CEE Professor Michael Meyer serves as director of the GTI/UTC and chair of the Eno Board of Regents, the organization that oversees the leadership program. The GTI/UTC subsidizes half of the costs associated with each student’s participation in the conference.
UTC/GTI is committed to providing quality leadership on research, education, and technology transfer to address issues related to transportation system productivity (including both passenger travel and freight of all modes), economic growth, and finance. The center works with local, state and regional agencies to identify research problems and opportunities.
