Dr. Nancy G. Love, Joann Silverstein Distinguished University Professor at the University of Michigan and a member of the civil and environmental engineering department and the University of Michigan Center for Social Solutions, will reflect on her experiences in a Zoom presentation. Her talk is titled “Reflections on Engineering: Scholarship in Service to Society” at 1 p.m. Thursday, May 5. It is sponsored by S&T’s Center for Science, Technology and Society.
