The Civil and Environmental Engineering Visiting Council (CEEVC) is a volunteer advisory body to the Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) Department at Old Dominion University, Norfolk Virginia. It was established in 1987 to meet the need for collaboration between the University and the local engineering community. The council is presently comprised of 25 senior professional engineers from a cross-section of local industry, government, business, and academia. Many are ODU Civil and Environmental Engineering alumni, and all are local engineering leaders - valued ‘friends of the university’. This presentation documents how CEEVC brings ODU and the engineering community together, and provides guidelines, procedures, and documents for engineering departments to establish similar organizations to engage the engineering community in higher education.
