The UA chapter of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers, or SHPE/UA, is voted Regional Chapter of the Month for February at the SHPE Regional Leadership Development Conference in Santa Barbara, Calif.
Susie Tipton was using the Internet to look up information about her late husband's military unit when she came upon a site about a UA scholarship created in his memory. Tipton said the scholarship is an honorable memorial.
The center was established 15 years ago with National Science Foundation funding, but is now funded by industry. The University of Arizona leads the interdisciplinary center, and has a long list of industry and academic partners.
