Teri Reed, PhD, joins the UC CEAS as an administrator and as a professor in the Department of Biomedical, Chemical and Environmental Engineering. She also serves as Assistant Vice President for Economic Development in the Office of Research, though her primary appointment is in CEAS.
An advocate for research-informed approaches to engineering education, curricular reform, equity, cultural humility, and policy, as well as student recruitment and retention efforts, Reed has made significant contributions nationally. She helped establish the scholarly foundation for engineering education as an academic discipline through co-authorship of the landmark 2006 Journal of Engineering Education’s special reports, “The National Engineering Education Research Colloquies” and “The Research Agenda for the New Discipline of Engineering Education.”
Her teaching interests include statistics, introductory engineering, diversity, and leadership. Her research interests include statistics education, concept inventory development, assessment and evaluation of learning and programs, recruitment and retention, diversity, and equity.
Reed received her BS in petroleum engineering from the University of Oklahoma and spent 7 years in the petroleum industry during which time she earned her MBA. Reed holds a PhD in industrial engineering from Arizona State University. She as extensive experience in an academic setting and held administrative roles at the University of Oklahoma, Purdue and Texas A&M. Most recently, she held the title of Assistant Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs with the Texas A&M University System. She also served as the Assistant Agency Director for Workforce Development for Texas A&M’s Engineering Experiment Station and was an Associate Professor in the Harold Vance Department of Petroleum Engineering.
Reed is currently the President of the Women in Engineering ProActive Network (WEPAN). She is also a member, board member and Fellow of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE), and a member of the Institute of Electronics and Electrical Engineers and the Society of Petroleum Engineers. She also serves as an ABET Engineering Accreditation Council program evaluator for ASEE.
Reed has received numerous honors including the 2015 William Elgin Wickenden Award for research publications in JEE, the 2015 Texas A&M University Women’s Progress Award for Administrators, and 2012 Purdue University’s One Brick Higher Award, one of Purdue’s highest honors from the university president.
