PhD Student Amber Woodburn Selected for Eno Leadership Development Conference

KNOXVILLE, Tenn.– Amber Woodburn, a PhD student in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering under the direction of Dr. Megan Ryerson, has been selected to participate in the twenty-first annual Eno Leadership Development Conference, to be held June 2-6, 2013, in Washington, D.C.

Woodburn will be part of a small class of students, Eno Fellows, who are engaged in transportation policy. Only around twenty students are chosen as Eno Fellows each year.

The Eno Center for Transportation, host of the conference, is a neutral, non-partisan think-tank that promotes policy innovation and provides professional development opportunities across the career span of transportation professionals. The conference will provide a first-hand look at how transportation policy is developed and implemented. Attendees will meet with top government officials, leaders of associations, and members of congress and their staff, for a look at how the nation's transportation policies are debated, shaped, formed, and ultimately adopted and applied.

The intensive program helps participants to understand the policy-making process that will become increasingly more important in transportation careers.
