Ramesh Agarwal has devoted most of his career to nurturing, mentoring, guiding, and looking after the welfare of his students in and out of the classroom. He is deeply involved in the broader community and provides the opportunities for his students to become similarly engaged. In 2008, for example, he introduced service learning in his undergraduate Fluid Mechanics course with support from the National Science Foundation and Gephardt Instituteâ€™s Civic Engagement Fund. Course participants gain field experience as they examine issues related to energy efficiency and develop affordable engineering solutions in low-income neighborhoods.
