Mount Union Professor Dudash Earns Fellowship, $10,000 Grant for Leadership in Engineering Education

November 16, 2023

ALLIANCE – Recognized for her work to advance engineering education, Dr. Lynn Dudash, assistant professor of engineering at the University of Mount Union, has been named an Engineering Unleashed Fellow for 2023. 

The Engineering Unleashed Fellowship acknowledges leadership in undergraduate engineering education with only 30 individuals from 24 institutions across the country earning this honor. Individuals are selected beginning with participation in one of the organization’s development workshops, which focus on the development and application of an entrepreneurial mindset in teaching and learning, research, industry or leadership.

Each fellow worked with peer coaches on a yearlong project that was published on the Engineering Unleashed website. The coaches nominated Dudash for the fellowship, which only represents less than 10% of the total workshop participants across the United States. Each fellow is awarded a $10,000 grant to further advance their projects or develop a new one. 

“Thank you to Engineering Unleashed and the Kern Family Foundation for this opportunity to be an ambassador for entrepreneurial mindset in engineering education,” Dudash said. “I believe that by combining entrepreneurial mindset with their engineering know-how, our graduates will be able to take on the world’s challenges, big and small, and to achieve Mount's mission of fulfilling lives and meaningful work. I look forward to using this fellowship to share this work with community and to continue incorporating entrepreneurial mindset into my teaching.”
