Amy Trowbridge has made a career out of preparing students in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University to rise to the challenge of solving global issues using an entrepreneurial mindset.
Since the university adopted the Kern Entrepreneurial Engineering Network (KEEN) mission in 2016, the senior lecturer and director of the National Academy of Engineering Grand Challenge Scholars Program at ASU has championed other Fulton Schools faculty to embrace and exercise the entrepreneurial mindset to teach students to make positive societal impacts.
Now the Kern Family Foundation has recognized Trowbridge’s efforts by naming her the 2019 KEEN Rising Star. The award is given to individuals with less than 10 years of faculty experience who demonstrate a record of achieving alignment with KEEN’s mission by implementing inventive, impactful, inspiring and integrated applications of the entrepreneurial mindset.
