The University of Maryland Office of Community Engagement has recognized Department of Aerospace Engineering Department Chair and Minta Martin Professor of Engineering Norman Wereley with their “Making a Difference” Award for his efforts in building local outreach activities in the College Park community.  This award recognizes those who have helped the Office of Community Engagement (OCE) achieve its goals to connect the university with the wider and diverse surrounding community. 

OCE specifically acknowledged Wereley’s commitment to connect and partner with the College Park Aviation Museum, and for giving the Aerospace Engineering students the opportunity to both learn from the community and to share their knowledge.

Wereley has worked to build connections in the College Park community, and in particular between the departments and the College Park Aviation Museum. Recently, he helped coordinate the donation of both a helicopter and an operational 15 foot per second open circuit wind tunnel to the museum from the department. The wind tunnel will serve as a learning tool for both museum visitors and UMD students. In addition, Wereley has helped support student involvement in community events such as College Park Day and Discover Engineering Family Day at the National Building Museum.

“This award came to me because of the efforts of all those in the department in various ways,” said Wereley. “I want to make sure that all those individuals, and the many students that supported these initiatives, know that I very much appreciate the great support that I received from all of them in realizing these initiatives.” 

Wereley will recieve the award during a ceremony hosted by OCE at the College Park Aviation Museum on December 14, 2016.
