Ruth Davis

Professor Davis, who also serves as the School of Engineering's Associate Dean for Undergraduate Studies, works to incorporate sustainability into the undergraduate engineering curriculum. Through her efforts, all engineering freshmen receive an introduction to sustainability in their required Intro to Engineering course.

Dr. Davis has written a number of grant proposals to fund sustainability efforts, including the highly successful 2007 Sustainability Decathlon that partnered SCU students with local high schools to "green" their campuses. She was also responsible for NSF funding that enabled the development of courses for the new core that incorporate Critical Thinking and Writing while focusing on sustainability issues.
