On Saturday, my department celebrated the 50th anniversary reunion since the ISyE was first established at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. 50 years of excellence. Jeff Linderoth and alum Jessica Rannow did such a wonderful job live-tweeting the event that I will recap the reunion using tweets.
I gave a talk on airport security at the reunion. My slides are below.
And finally, we celebrated at a lovely poster reception and banquet. Jeff Roznowski — Professor at the Milwaukee School of Engineering and author of “I am the Wisconsin Idea” — talked about the Wisconsin idea. Our alums really love the idea of UW-Madison giving back to the state and extending its influence past the boundary of campus. I’m glad they love the Wisconsin Idea as much as I do.
