Four Concrete Industry Management program universities - Arizona State University, Middle Tennessee State University, Texas State University - San Marcos, and New Jersey Institute of Technology - have been named Excellent Universities from the American Concrete Institute (ACI) for student and faculty efforts to support the industry.
For the award competition, universities were selected based on the number of ACI members in the student chapter, on students' and faculty members' participation in ACI competitions, committees, conventions and meetings, and participation in other concrete industry-related activities. Universities were also judged on community outreach efforts by student and faculty involving neighborhood revitalization, construction projects and donated services. The ACI noted the impressive achievements of the ASU student chapter in only five years since it was formed.
ACI Excellent University Award winners were formally announced at the institute's national convention.
