ASHRAE Member Honored with University of Oklahoma Endowed Fellowship

From eSociety, November 2018

The University of Oklahoma is honoring an ASHRAE Member through an endowed fellowship to continue mechanical, electrical and plumbing education at the university.

Don Carter, P.E., Member ASHRAE, recently retired from the university after 12 years teaching MEP systems in the school’s Division of Construction Science and more than 25 years on the facilities management team. Carter used his experience and resources to teach student-centered, grounded lessons about MEP systems that evolved with technological advances, according to the university.

The Construction Science Division created an endowed faculty fellowship, named the Don Carter MEP fellowship, to ensure MEP classes continue to be taught from that perspective and by faculty who is committed to students

The fellowship will provide resources to a CNS faculty member teaching MEP classes and will help ensure those classes incorporate practical experience and the newest technologies. The fellowship’s goal is $250,000.

Carter is a long-time member of the ASHRAE Central Oklahoma Chapter, and he continues to serve through helping Student Activities chairs and volunteering at the chapter’s Fall RP Gold event.
