Sponsored by the Construction Liaison Committee of the American Concrete Institute (ACI) and the American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC), the competition was open to all university, college and technical school undergraduate students. The purpose of the competition was to find real-world solutions to problems or issues encountered on a concrete construction project.

As part of the recent campus celebration of International Education Week, the Mu Chapter of Phi Beta Delta Honor Society for International Scholars inducted 40 new faculty, staff and student members and awarded the 2013 honorary membership to The World Affairs Council of Charlotte.
New members were recognized for their excellence in international research, international study and for contributions to the internationalization of UNC Charlotte and the larger Charlotte community.
The World Affairs Council of Charlotte was honored for its many and diverse programs that focus on education and world affairs. “The Council seeks to provide leadership for global thinking, believing that a broad perspective is necessary for effective competition in the global economy and for responsible citizenship in an increasingly interdependent political world,” said Dr. Michael Thompson, chapter president and associate professor of Public Health Sciences.
