Andrea M. Ogilvie Honorary Endowed Excellence Fund for Equal Opportunity in Engineering
As EOE director, Ogilvie led the Cockrell School’s efforts to recruit and retain ethnically underrepresented students as well as students who have backgrounds or experiences that will contribute to the overall diversity of the school.
During her term, Ogilvie raised more than $3.7 million in private and public grants to support the EOE program and its mission. While the EOE Program was under her direction, UT Austin ranked as high as third in the nation in producing undergraduate engineering degrees for minority groups, and the program was recognized with awards such as the 2011 NSBE ExxonMobil Impact Award and the 2012 College Board Innovator Award, Getting through College Category.
For more than a decade, Ogilvie served as adviser to the nationally recognized UT Austin student chapters of Pi Sigma Pi Minority Academic Engineering Society, the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), and the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE).
Ogilvie is a proud Texas Ex. She earned her first two degrees from UT Austin, a BS in civil engineering and a master of public affairs. She is currently pursuing a PhD in engineering education at Virginia Tech.
