The recently retired president of the Dassault Systemes US Foundation USA and now board member for Base 11 Al Bunshaft, and Teniel Jones, president and chief executive officer of Base 11 were on campus for a visit in early June. Base 11 is a STEM workforce and entrepreneur accelerator. They connect employers, academic institutions, and entrepreneurial opportunities with high-potential, under-resourced students who have shown interest and talent but lack the access and resources needed to realize their greatest potential. Bunshaft is a long-time member of Vaughn’s Engineering and Technology Department’s Industry Advisory Council. President Sharon DeVivo is a member of Base 11’s regional advisory board.
