The Dean's Leadership Council will serve an important role in the development of future CEAS initiatives.

The College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS) at the University of Wyoming has formed a new team to provide vision and help accomplish overall goals for education and outreach for the college.

Dean Michael Pishko announced this week the formation of the CEAS Dean's Leadership Council. It is composed of professionals from industry. Charter members of the council include Bruce Pivic (President and CEO of Infinity Power & Controls), Amy Allen (Director of Public Services for the City of Rock Springs, Wyo.), Zia Yasrobi (Owner/manager of Y2 Consultants), Bryan Hassler (President of United Energy Partners, LLC and Managing Director of Silverpeak Strategic Partners), Angie Schrader (Simulation Product Manager at Autodesk) and Joe Leimkuhler (Vice President of Drilling for LLOG Exploration). Members will have a three-year term, with an option for an additional three-year term.

The primary function of the council is an advisory role. The CEAS Dean’s Leadership Council will work with Pishko and Ben Blalock, the President of the University of Wyoming Foundation, to determine its role in seeking private support. The first item for consideration is development of a strategic plan for the college.

Efforts also are under way to develop a document for governing the Wyoming Engineering Extension Service, a mechanism for the college to provide education and outreach services to areas of economic importance across the state. One of the primary roles of the council will be to engage industry and government around the key themes.
