The purpose of the Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP2) Education Connection is to increase awareness and understanding of SHRP2 products in the academic arena by incorporating SHRP2 products into collegiate level lesson plans and curricula. The SHRP2 products were developed to solve transportation problems and, therefore, lend themselves to transportation curricula such as civil and environmental engineering, and transportation planning. However, the SHRP2 products are applicable to other departments such as urban planning, economics, government, and human resources. This effort will allow the value and benefits of the SHRP2 national investment to extend through the next generation of transportation professionals. Incorporating SHRP2 products into university and college courses will expose future engineers and other transportation professionals to new tools, processes, and innovations that address emerging transportation issues and challenges. For the purpose of the planned award, FHWA will focus on three of the four SHRP2 focus area: Reliability, Renewal, and Capacity.
