The fellow grade is conferred by the board of directors upon an ASEE member with outstanding and extraordinary qualifications, experience in engineering or engineering technology education or an allied field, and significant ASEE contributions.
"It is incredibly humbling to be recognized as a Fellow of the American Society for Engineering Education," Crawford said. "I like to think of this as an individual recognition of a team award. I have spent the 36 years of my professional life in serving and educating others. Throughout this time, I have been incredibly blessed to partner with some amazing people, all over the world. I have shared with them and learned from them and my hope is that they have benefitted from our association as much as I have."
Education is much broader than just teaching class, he said.
"While one of my basic objectives in working with students is to transform their mindsets from those of high school students into those of practicing engineers and team leaders, I think an equally important goal is to inspire my students to succeed through effort by using myself as a case study in how an individual of humble origins can take advantage of limited opportunities, overcome roadblocks and obstacles, and find an amazing pathway through life," he said.
"Grant's selection to the Academy of Fellows of the American Society for engineering education is an acknowledgement — at the highest level — of his career-long commitment to the education of young engineers," said Justin Kile, dean of the School of Engineering. "He is passionate about the art of teaching, and sharing that art with other educators. Every day our students benefit from his dynamic and engaging teaching style directly from Professor Crawford and from the other faculty that he has mentored."
