ASSP Region VI welcomes the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (UNCC) Student Section!

We are pleased to announce the establishment of a new Student Section at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. The UNCC Student Section is under the school’s Fire and Safety Engineering Technology Program, in the department of Engineering Technology and Construction Management.

Many thanks to Dr. Michael Benjamin, who is the faculty advisor; the student section officers, the Executive Committee of ASSP Tarheel Chapter and others that supported this long-time dream that has now become reality.

“Since students are from the Fire Safety Engineering Technology Program, we have aimed to gear this club (the section) to the safety applications of the field of fire protection, but still cover the general safety practices” – Seth Averette, Student Section President.

It was about this same time last year that the Region welcomed Liberty University Student Section in Lynchburg, Virginia. We are excited that our students are getting engaged with professional activities from college, which is a boost for their future career paths.  

Please join us to congratulate UNCC Student Section. We look forward to working with you!

Liberty University Welcomed as New Student Section

ASSP Region 6 welcomes – Liberty University Student Section!

Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA, part of the Star Valley Chapter, is home to our latest student section. The school’s residential industrial and systems engineering program offers a B.S in Industrial and Systems Engineering.

Building on experience and support provided by faculty advisor Diana Jo Schwerha, Ph.D., the section’s officers took the lead in building the section and recruiting the members needed to form the section.

“We have a focus on servant leadership,” Schwerha says. “I would like to weave those leadership skills into our academic training so that our students enter the workforce prepared for both the technical and leadership challenges ahead of them.”

Congratulations, Liberty University! We look forward to your activities and contributions!
