Biography

Donald D. Carpenter, PhD, PE, LEED AP is Professor of Civil Engineering where he teaches courses on ethics/professionalism and water resources.  Dr. Carpenter received his PhD from the University of Michigan in 2001.  He is an accredited green design professional (LEED AP) and practicing professional engineer (PE) whose expertise and research interests include engineering ethics, entrepreneurial engineering, Low Impact Development (LID), innovative stormwater best management practices (BMPs), hydraulic and hydrologic modeling, and field data collection for performance monitoring.  His University appointments include serving as University Director of Assessment from 2009 to 2012 after serving as founding Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning from 2006 to 2009.  In 2014, the Kern Family Foundation named him their national Most Outstanding Faculty member recognizing his efforts to bring innovative team based problem solving into the engineering curriculum to promote the entrepreneurial mindset.  As founding Director of the Great Lakes Stormwater Management Institute at Lawrence Tech, he conducts research on stormwater BMPs and advises communities on how to implement innovative stormwater management practices.  Dr. Carpenter routinely provides professional lectures and short courses on innovative stormwater treatment design and their role in LID implementation and fulfillment of LEED Sustainable Sites Credits.  In 2013, he was elected to serve as a Governor for Cranbrook Institute of Science and a Director for the non-profit organization Pure Oakland Water. Finally, Dr. Carpenter is an active committee leader for the ASCE Environmental and Water Resources Institute and a member of the SEMCOG Clean Water Partners, MDEQ Green Infrastructure Committee, and Rouge River Advisory Council.
