Highlighting Faculty and Student Research, Scholarship and Artistic Expression through posters, oral exhibits of research projects, digital artwork, and scholarly publications

This event will provide an opportunity for the campus community to celebrate the achievements of individual advancement of scholarship, research, and the arts. Nearly 100 participants will display their work throughout the day.

The School of Engineering and Computer Science invited speaker will be Terry Oliver, Chief Technology Innovation Officer for the Bonneville Power Administration (CTIO). Mr. Oliver has worked globally to advance sustainable energy and re-engage the electric utility industry in critically important research and development (R&D). He has worked for Bonneville power Administration (BPA) since 1981. Mr. Oliver led the world's largest residential conservation program and ground-breaking research in community-based conservation, designed the first Demand-Side Management programs ever undertaken by a developing country, created linkages between sustainable energy, jobs, and the local and global environment with non-government organizations throughout Asia, South Africa, and the Middle East. As Chief Technology Innovation Officer, Mr. Oliver has tripled BPA's investment in R&D. He has transformed BPA's executive and staff engagement in defining and managing a research portfolio; and he led the creation of BPA's first public and formal research agenda. Terry advises the Electric Power Research Institute, Carnegie Mellon University's Electricity Industry Center, and the Smart Grid Policy Center. Mr. Oliver's speech begins at noon.
