Becker Elected AEESP Foundation Chair

Jennifer G. Becker (CEE) has been elected chair of the Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors (AEESP) Foundation. She was elected to the AEESP Foundation Board of Directors in 2019, and her three-year term as chair of the Foundation began last month.

AEESP is an international organization with more than 800 members, most of whom are environmental engineering and science professors. The AEESP Foundation supports and encourages excellence in environmental engineering and science education, outreach, and scientific research by sponsoring a distinguished lecturer series, awarding K-12 educational and outreach grants, and endowing and administering award programs for professors and students.

Becker has a distinguished record of service to the environmental engineering community. She served as a member of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Science Advisory Board’s Environmental Engineering Committee from 2016 until the committee was retired in 2018. She was elected by her environmental engineering and science academic peers to the AEESP Board of Directors in 2010. While on the AEESP Board of Directors, Becker was also elected to several AEESP officer positions, including president of AEESP (2013-2014).
