President Elect Stevens’ Vision Statement:

In these challenging times, it’s still great to be a civil engineer. While civil engineers can provide society the infrastructure that it needs, it is only possible for us to do that if funds are available to do it. Both our Infrastructure Report Cards and Failure to Act reports provide valuable information. They are helping us get the message out that the condition of our infrastructure is not what it should be or could be and that more public- and private-sector funding is needed. While we are doing a great job getting this message out to the public and our elected officials, more needs to be done. We especially need to do more to enhance our efforts towards influencing public policy. I see an ASCE that is an even more influential leader.

ASCE’s Roadmap 2025 provides specific steps that the civil engineering profession can take to achieve the Vision 2025 for the Civil Engineer. This is a global vision of civil engineers working smarter and more effectively for the good of all people by creating a sustainable world and enhancing the global quality of life. To accomplish this, civil engineers need to not only be planners, designers, constructors, and operators of the built environment but also leaders in infrastructure policy, managers of risk due to natural and man-made disasters, and innovators and integrators of ideas and technology. It will take a closely coordinated global civil engineering community endeavor to achieve this Vision. There is much to be done to achieve Vision 2025 in the next 12 years.
