Event Description:

Engineers create practical applications from discoveries and theories, offering a critical bridge between the community and experts in diverse fields of study. Do artists, civic and religious leaders, sociologists, and others recognize the power of partnering with engineers? Do engineers sufficiently consider the impact of their work on social, cultural, and community development? Explore these questions and others with panelists Doug Acheson, professor at IUPUI Purdue School of Engineering and Technology; Larry Hickman, professor and director of the Center for Dewey Studies at Southern Illinois University; Pete Hylton, professor at IUPUI Purdue School of Engineering and Technology and director of the IUPUI Motorsports Program; Gregory Keller, philosophy professor at IU School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI; Rev. John Koppitch, Fairview Presbyterian Church; David Russick, chief designer for the Indianapolis Museum of Art; and Robert White, sociology professor and former dean of the IU School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI. Q&A will follow. Free. Presented by IUPUI Purdue School of Engineering & Technology, Fairview Presbyterian Church, and Indianapolis Museum of Art. Questions?
