Associate Dean of Engineering for Community Engagement and Experiential Learning

Associate Professor of Computer Science and Engineering

Jay Brockman has served on the steering committee of the University’s Community Engagement Coordinating Council (CECC) since its inception in 2011. Brockman has a long history of establishing courses that engage students in the local community, such as ESTS20202, where undergraduate students worked with area fifth graders to integrate the Arts into Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEAMnd). Brockman is currently working to deepen involvement of undergraduate and graduate students in the Bowman Creek Neighborhood Restoration Project. In his role as Faculty Fellow, he will continue to work with Center faculty and staff on a number of initiatives. Of particular note, he and Alisa Zornig Gura, Center Science and Engineering Academic Community Engagement Program Manager, will continue to work together with campus and community partners to promote formal and informal community-engaged learning opportunities for Notre Dame students with a goal of integrating principles of Catholic social tradition and the practice of reflection into a cross-listed Engineering/Center for Social Concerns course. Professor Brockman is a cofounder of Emu Solutions, Inc., located at Innovation Park, which is commercializing technology developed by his research group in high performance computing.
