Two CEE graduate students chosen for leadership conference

Congratulations to Margaret Akofio-Sowah and James Wong, two CEE  graduate students selected by the Eno Center for Transportation's Board of Regents to participate in the 21st Annual Eno Leadership Development Conference in Washington, DC, June 2-6.

Akofio-Sowah is a doctoral student in civil and environmental engineering and Wong is a joint degree student in civil engineering and city & regional planning.

The Eno Fellowship annually provides 20 graduate students with a first-hand look at how transportation policy is developed and implemented. It also offers participants an opportunity to meet with top government officials, leaders of associations, and members of Congress and their staffs.

Both Akofio-Sowah and Wong will attend the Eno Leadership Conference, which  introduces students to the intricacies of policy development in transportation and provides opportunities for students to meet transportation leaders from across the country. .

Supported by CEE, the National Center for Transportation Systems Productivity and Management (NCTSPM) 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.
