Dr. Scott Paja joined the College of Engineering in 2014. Scott established the Leadership Academy program soon after arriving, and grew it into the successful program it is today. In his past role as assistant dean for experiential learning & employer relations, Paja worked to support student success through high-impact experiential learning programs, and advanced the college as a partner of choice for those seeking engineering talent. Scott departed the College of Engineering in early 2021 for new opportunities, but he continues to be a staunch supporter from afar.
