Abstract: After spending eight years as a full-time academic administrator at Lafayette College in Easton, PA – one of only a handful of institutions where discipline-specific engineering programs are embedded in an undergraduate-only, liberal arts environment – I returned to full-time teaching in fall 2015. I began teaching civil engineering at Lafayette in 1991 and became department head in 2003, the start of an administrative journey that eventually reduced my teaching load to zero. From 2006 until 2014, I served as an American Council on Education fellow, the interim director of engineering, and then associate provost for academic operations.
