Faculty and Staff Resources

Engineering staff advisory council

As part of an effort to continue improving college processes, we have established the Engineering Staff Advisory Council (ESAC) - an advisory group to the Dean on staff issues. The ESAC will serve as a sounding board from which advice/counsel can be solicited on staff related matters within the College, and a communication channel to the College staff regarding items in the college.  A strict confidentiality will be maintained regarding concerns brought to the Dean’s attention as well as deliberations on those matters. Presently, there are five staff members on the ESAC.  They are Melissa Fay (mfay@lsu.edu), Vera Watkins (vera@csc.lsu.edu; CS), George Ohrberg (george@eng.lsu.edu), Andi Donmyer (adonmyer@lsu.edu; PETE) and Trisha Lawhon (tlawhon@lsu.edu; MIE).
