Liam's Legacy 2023: Humanitarian Engineering with Juan Lucena
Please come join us for an exciting dialogue with Professor Juan Lucena, Director of the Humanitarian Engineering Undergraduate Program and Professor of Engineering, Design and Society at the Colorado School of Mines. Professor Lucena will explore the themes that animate his teaching and scholarship, and explore with attendees the idea that "engineers and engineering have culture that can be studied and, if necessary, transformed for the wellbeing of communities, social justice, and sustainability." This event will take place in the ninth floor Atrium of the CODA building. A reception will follow the program, and attendees will be warmly invited to continue the conversation. Please note that registration is required. We are excited to see you there!
Presented by the Center for Sustainable Communities Research and Education, in partnership with School of History and Sociology (through a grant from the Gertrude and William C. Wardlaw Fund in support of the Conference on Human Rights, Changes and Challenges).
About Liam Rattray & Liam's Legacy:
The Liam's Legacy Symposium honors the memory of Liam Rattray, an outstanding and socially-committed Georgia Tech Honors Program student who was tragically killed by a drunk driver just a few weeks after his graduation, in 2011. We mourn his death, but we also celebrate his life in this annual event that carries his name and draws upon his legacy of engagement and activism.
