Steven K. Dentel / AEESP Award for Global Outreach I

For Outstanding Contributions and Leadership through Involvement in Environmental Engineering and Science Outreach Activities to the Global Community.

Dr. Maya Trotz’s global initiatives on sustainability and community engagement integrate interdisciplinary education, research, and global partners, providing students, middle and high school science/ math teachers, faculty, and community partners with mutually beneficial international engagement. Her programs are the crowning achievement of boundary-spanning, with a focus on grand challenges of global importance that promote sustainability, especially in Caribbean economically challenged communities, but also through mentoring of graduate research to improve well-being in Barbados, Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, Bolivia, Liberia, Madagascar, Mali, and Peru. Her extensive sustained portfolio of accomplishments has accordingly increased the global footprint of environmental engineering and sciences.
