Northrop Grumman Vice President to Chair Council
Suzanne Jenniches, vice president and general manager of Northrop Grumman Government Systems Division, will chair the new Advisory Council for the Part-Time Programs in Engineering and Applied Science of Johns Hopkins University's Whiting School of Engineering, the school has announced.
Comprising representatives of both Johns Hopkins and the Washington/Baltimore metropolitan area business community, the council's main objective is to ensure that the part-time engineering programs stay in touch with the continuing education needs of working adults.
"The most successful part-time programs are those that stay one step ahead of the needs of the business community," said Sarah Steinberg, executive director of the Whiting School's Part-Time Programs in Engineering and Applied Science. "With this council, we are forging partnerships with public and private entities that have a vested interest in ensuring that the courses offered to working adults will be in touch with their needs and in tune with business and economic trends."
"Johns Hopkins Part-Time Engineering has always been an integral asset in my professional life," said Jenniches, a Johns Hopkins alumna, "and I am honored to be asked to head up this first Advisory Council to help ensure the continued relevancy of these important programs."
Jenniches began her science career as a high school biology teacher after receiving a B.S. degree from Clarion State College in 1970. She received a master's degree in environmental engineering from Johns Hopkins in 1979 and has attended the Harvard Business School Program for Management Development.
