Six engineering students, another faculty member, and I work with the Panama Canal Authority on research issues surrounding canal expansion. Because of the importance of the Canal for the national identity of Panama and its people, this project explores both the technical and societal aspects of the Canal and its expansion. We travel to Panama as a team, and I have been to Panama several other times to build our network and create new collaborative relationships (generally about twice per year). Much of this work is funded through internal sources such as the UVa International Studies Office, as well as the Jefferson Trust.

2. Berger, E. J. and Johnson, D., “Engineering and the Social Context of the Panama Canal Expansion”, early stages of preparation for a volume on Panama edited by Vivian Thomson from Environmental Science. Textbook Supplements–the Berger Video Series for Hibbeler • Berger, E. J., “Video Solution Series for Hibbeler’s Strength of Materials (7e)”, for Pearson PrenticeHall, 2008 (100 videos). • Berger, E. J., “Video Solution Series for Hibbeler’s Engineering Mechanics: Statics (12e)”, for Pearson Prentice-Hall, 2009 (75 videos). • Berger, E. J., “Video Solution Series for Hibbeler’s Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics (12e)”, for Pearson Prentice-Hall, 2009 (75 videos). Beginning in 2007, I pitched the idea for a video solution series to Pearson for their best-selling Hibbeler text book series in engineering mechanics, and this idea was based upon my HigherEd 2.0 initiative (see also the relevant publications and funding for this program). I delivered the first video series in 2008; 100 videos totaling about 25 hours of textbook supplement available to students over the internet in Quicktime format. The next two video series were developed in successive years, and together they represent 150 videos and nearly 30 hours of video resources for students. The Hibbeler textbook series in engineering mechanics is the best-selling series in the country, with a circulation of about 50,000 units per year. This means that my work has visibility with tens of thousands of students and hundreds of higher education faculty every year. The feedback I receive is overwhelmingly positive from both students and faculty, and these resources are currently (2012) being more tightly integrated into Pearson’s Mastering Engineering online homework platform.

Professional Service

Duties as Associate Dean for Undergraduate Programs, SEAS Key: constantly administratively intensive [CAI], seasonally administratively intensive [SAI] • supervise a staff of 3 full-time employees, and interface with faculty and staff who have various levels of responsibility for undergraduate program functions [CAI] • administer and oversee every aspect of SEAS undergraduate program, 10 degree programs and 2400 students [CAI] • enforce SEAS academic standards and sanctions, mediate appeals [SAI, May-June, December-January] • plan and execute periodic SEAS undergraduate-focused events [SAI–open house, parents weekend] • support and counsel undergraduate students in academic or personal need, and interface with other University support services as necessary [CAI–students with personal issues, mental health issues, etc.; interface with student health, Dean of Students, etc.] • coordinate summer orientation/advising for over 600 in-coming SEAS students (including transfers) [SAI, May-August]

• organize major application process for first-year students [SAI–March-July] • allocate resources and responsibilities to SEAS faculty and departments [SAI, committee assignments, core teaching, TA funding, etc.] • respond to requests from the Dean for information, data, advice, etc. as part of SEAS-wide planning and administration [SAI] • manage ABET reviews process in conjunction with SEAS Director of Assessment (J. Dugan), take key responsibility for SEAS “core” [SAI] • meet with students to mediate disputes, counsel about their future in SEAS, etc. [CAI] • serve as SEAS liaison to all manner of university-level undergraduate program activities, committees, and functions [CAI, Dean of Students office, Admissions, Orientation, etc.] This position is an incredibly time-intensive appointment with an enormous amount of student contact time, most of which involves mediating disputes or working with students at-risk for academic sanction due to a wide range of problems. The undergraduate AD also represents the School on a wide range of University committees related to undergraduate education. The position requires an extraordinary amount of student affairs work in conjunction with colleagues across the academic and non-academic units at UVa, including Student Health, Office of the Dean of Students, and others. The office maintains a “watch list” of students who need some form of support, whether it be short term (1-2 weeks) or longer-term (3+ weeks) in order to navigate a difficult, if temporary, circumstance or to cope with more serious issues. In a population of 2,400 undergraduate students, it is not surprising that typically up to 10% in a given academic year might need substantial support from my office. With a staff of just three other people to address students affairs situations (Mary Lane and Carolyn Frey, the SEAS registrars, can devote perhaps 30% of their time to this; Mary Beck devotes perhaps 40% of her time to this), this becomes a dominant and all-consuming responsibility for my office.
