Beverly Kuhn, Texas A&M University System Regents Fellow and division head with the Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI), was elected the 2021 International Vice President of the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE).
Since joining as a student 30 years ago, Kuhn has been active in ITE at every level and is currently an ITE Fellow. As International Vice President, Kuhn will work with the International Board of Direction and the membership to further embrace diversity, enhance collaboration among transportation stakeholders, and fully leverage the expertise and perspective of ITE’s councils and committees. Her vision is to better leverage the integral role transportation plays in the prosperity of our communities and citizens.
Kuhn has nearly three decades of diverse and extensive experience in the conduct and delivery of cutting-edge research results for the transportation community. As head of TTI’s System Reliability Division, she leads a team of researchers in the areas of advanced transportation operations and connected and automated transportation.
“I believe ITE can help ensure our members and our neighbors are not only included but heard in a meaningful dialogue so that their needs are met, and they can realize the future they want for themselves and their families,” says Kuhn. “As transportation professionals, we play a key role in helping make their success a reality.”
Kuhn will take office in January 2021.
