|Rosenow selected as honoree
John Rosenow, AgE 71, has been selected as one of five 2001 Masters Week honorees by the University of NebraskaLincoln. Rosenow is president of The National Arbor Day Foundation.
The Masters Week program, sponsored jointly by the Alumni Association and the Chancellors office, is designed to involve outstanding alums with current students and faculty through class visits and special activities. More than 200 alumni have participated in Masters Week since its inception in 1964.
For more information on Masters Week events,
Ive been given the duty and honor of leading the Engineering Alumni Board. This is a bit daunting, especially after the tremendous leadership of Kevin Schneider, Rob Nickolaus and Bill Ramsey, among others. Just look at the shape were in:
The Engineering Alumni Fund for Academic Excellence has surpassed our initial goal.
We can be very proud of these achievements, but we could and need to be doing more.
We can have stronger links to old college friends, more corporate sponsors during E-Week and at college career fairs, and hire more interns from the college.
We also can seek more and better opportunities to link our businesses with the college, more ways to encourage top-notch high school kids to study here, more ways to get tuition breaks and scholarships for our kids when they come here You get the drift.
As engineers, its not in our character to sit back and watch things happen. Were the ones who make things happen.
The Engineering Alumni Board is a great tool, but we need your input and your help to do the best job we can. Send us your ideas and your comments. Get involved! You can make a difference.

|Alumnus teaches business in Moldova
Rod Pejsar wanted to get involved with something after retiring from a computer systems company he founded in the late 1980s.
Last fall, he headed to Moldova to teach business practices to the people of the former communist country.
The landlocked country is mostly agricultural and lacks the civil and telecommunications infrastructure of more developed nations. Moldovas unemployment rate is less than two percent, Pejsar says, but wages are pitifully small. Homes are modern-looking with electricity but no running water. With a population of 4.5 million, there are only half a million phones throughout the country. Getting in at the grass roots is where we need to help, he says.
Pejsar received a M.S. in mechanical engineering in 1971 and Ph.D. in industrial engineering in 1975, both from UNL. Contact him at <email@example.com>.
