“Members of the CAEE Academy of Distinguished Alumni have each had a profound and positive impact on the world we live in,” said Department Chair Richard Corsi.  “They do much to help our students, not the least of which is to inspire them to do great things themselves.  We are fortunate to have such a distinguished group of alumni, and the Class of 2016 adds to the impressive and multi-dimensional accomplishments of the Academy.”

The Class of 2016 will be inducted on September 30, 2016. Alumni, faculty and students are invited to attend the induction ceremony.
