For more than 15 years, Edward A. “Ed” Bogucz has helped put Syracuse University at the forefront of addressing global challenges for cleaner energy and healthier built environments. Now, the founding executive director of SyracuseCoE, New York State’s Center of Excellence in Environmental and Energy Systems, is returning to the classroom—to teach, research and mentor—to prepare the next generation of innovators.
Beginning Sept. 1, Laura J. Steinberg, professor of civil and environmental engineering and executive director of the Syracuse University Infrastructure Institute, will serve as interim executive director of SyracuseCoE while a national search takes place. A search committee will be appointed once the new dean of the College of Engineering and Computer Science is announced.
