YPC Lunch and Learn Presentation – September 22

How MDOT Operations Projects are Selected – presented by John Engle, P.E.

Have you ever wondered about the process of how MDOT operational improvement projects are selected?  Have you ever wondered what a funding template is, or what process MDOT follows in selecting operational improvements on its highway network?  This Virtual Lunch and Learn discussion, geared toward young professionals, will be led by John Engle, P.E. of the Michigan DOT, and he will help answer these questions as well as provide some practical commentary on how MDOT’s Operations Template selects and funds projects.  The one-hour session is free to attend, and will take place September 22, 2021, from 11am-Noon.

Leaders in Continuous Improvement (LCI) – looking for new e-board members

Leaders in Continuous Improvement (LCI) https://www.involvement.mtu.edu/organization/lci is looking for new e-board members for the student organization.

Leaders in Continuous Improvement is a student organization that helps build Lean skills through a variety of methods including hands on activities coupled with Lean training, industry tours and presentations, on-campus improvement opportunities such as 5S and other kaizens, and networking opportunities. I’m the advisor for LCI; if you would like to be a co-advisor, let me know!

This year the entire e-board has chosen not to continue for next year, though they would be willing to consult with new board members. It’s been an exhausting year for all, and the current eboard has run out of energy. A budget has been submitted for next year, so everything is ready to go. We just need a new leadership team! 


I appreciate your help with keeping this student organization active.
Sincerely, Ruth Archer ( raarcher@mtu.edu )


A Request from the Sustainability Orgs

Climate Reality Campus Corps has organized a team of students with representatives from each sustainability student organization on campus, and we are developing A Student Vision for Environmental Stewardship and Climate Action: a student-generated vision of what a greener, cleaner future for our campus could look like. Our goal is to demonstrate to the MTU administration that students care about sustainability and highlight the steps we believe are vital to achieving an environmentally sustainable campus. As part of this process, we want to gain input from as much of the student body as possible. We’ve listed some categories of campus operations in the form with space for you to lend your thoughts in as many areas as you’re able. Thank you for your insight!

We want your feedback! We are welcoming you to fill out the short form HERE or the long form HERE depending on how much information you want to share with us! Also, share this form with anyone and everyone who would want to see Michigan Tech get more sustainable!

We appreciate your feedback!
