SAME NYC Post Meeting
Three faculty members from the Department of Geography and Environmental Engineering took seven Cadets from different departments to the quarterly Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) New York City Post evening meeting. The event was held in the Harvard Club. The USMA SAME student chapter is a multidisciplinary academic club which exposes cadets to public/private engineering partnerships which are instrumental to the infrastructure of our nation in times of peace and war. SAME is dedicated to STEM initiatives and attendees of the meeting enjoyed a presentation and discussion by COL Thomas Asbery, Commander of the New York District of the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), and COL Patrick Kinsman, Commander of the Norfolk District of the USACE, regarding Coastal Resiliency Programs. Participation in this event enabled networking with key leaders in business, construction and administration within New York City and enriched West Point's interaction as well demonstrates the close relationship between the NYC SAME Post and the USMA SAME Student Chapter.
