Dr. Lorelle Meadows is Director of Academic Programs and a Research Scientist in the College of Engineering. She serves as MCSP’s advisor/liaison for our engineering students.
Dr. Meadows received served as a research faculty member and lecturer of the department of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering (NAME) after receiving her Ph.D. from the Atmospheric Oceanic and Space Sciences Department. Her main research interests lie in the development of understanding of the influence of physical processes on the nearshore zone. Most of this work has focused on the Great Lakes and associated larger inland water bodies, with some work on ocean coastal regions as well. Many of the research projects in which she has been involved host an interdisciplinary approach with an overall objective of improving ecosystem understanding, health and management, and provide a mechanism by which to bring research expertise into the classroom. Dr. Meadows has taught upper level environmental ocean dynamics courses as well as the college’s Introduction to Engineering course which combines a team project with technical communication material, environmental consciousness and ethics. Her most recently contribution to this course has been the development and implementation of a service-learning curriculum and the inception of an engineering education research program to explore the service-learning pedagogy in engineering. In her current role as Director of Academic Programs, she is responsible for the managing the first year program for engineering students, and actively participates in the development of curricular change in the college to enhance cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural learning experiences and opportunities.
