Furth Received ITE's Innovation in Education Award
CEE Professor Peter Furth received the Innovation in Education Award from the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE). The award stems mainly from the reputation of Furth’s Dialogue of Civilizations course, which other transportation engineering educators around the country have learned about. Furth brings an enthusiastic and innovative approach to the topic of sustainable transportation modes. He takes students of all disciplines to the Netherlands to see firsthand exemplary bicycling infrastructure, public transportation priority, and bike-and-transit-oriented urban planning. Through these efforts, Furth has influenced the thinking and opened the minds of many students and practitioners to a fresh approach to travel beyond the private vehicle mode.
