Traver was also featured in the December 2008 issue of Prism, the monthly magazine of the American Society for Engineering Education. Traver was included in a story on how some colleges have integrated engineering into the liberal arts curriculum.
The article highlights the first national symposium hosted by Union in 2008, "Engineering and Liberal Education.” In 1845, Union became the first liberal arts college to offer engineering. The symposium explored different models for integrating engineering, technology and the traditional liberal arts. A similar symposium was held last spring.
