The School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment (SSEBE) and Sigma Lambda Chi International Construction Honor Society (SLC) at Arizona State University maintain a strong program to support the Construction education and, above all, our next generation of builders. We recognize that we are not alone in this endeavor and owe much of our success to the generous support of our industry sponsors.
With the support of Steve Grauer; Vice President and District Manager of Hensel Phelps, one of the largest general contractors and construction managers in the United States as ranked by Engineering News Record (ENR), SSEBE and SLC have gifted over 100 hard hats for construction graduates in 2016 and 2017. Hard hats are the symbol of the construction industry. They represent safety, protection and responsibility. These donated hard hats remind the students about their education, and give them an opportunity to join the industry with confidence.
