+ - University of Akron Petitions ASCE

Submitted by
Zippy
Zippy writes "The University of Akron ASCE Student Chapter website has been converted to a petition to address the issue that their Steel Bridge and Concrete Canoe teams are being denied entry into the national competitions, despite placing first and second, respectively, at their local conferences.

From the site: "The University of Akron (UA) Concrete Canoe and Steel Bridge Teams qualified for the National competitions at the 2008 Ohio Valley Conference. However, invitations to nationals have not been granted because National ASCE fails to recognize UA's transfer to the Ohio Valley Conference even though both conferences approved the transfer. We have started a petition to show ASCE how important participation is to our students and our program. Please show your support for our teams by signing our petition. Thank you for your consideration.""
