Building on the positive momentum of 2022, the EPICS in IEEE program approved an impressive 39 projects in 2023, all of which support EPICS in IEEE’s four foundational pillars (Access & Abilities, Education & Outreach, Environment, and Human Services), and surpassed a milestone of USD $1 million in project funding. This positive growth and activity all contributed to the program’s most successful year-to-date!

In addition to providing essential project support in 2023, our committee made several enhancements to our operating processes and also increased our public engagements across IEEE to build awareness of EPICS in IEEE.  

“EPICS in IEEE had an outstanding year in 2023. The opportunity to bring engineering students together to learn and partner with their communities is important and inspiring. We are grateful to those who partnered with EPICS in IEEE in 2023, including the IEEE Foundation, which allowed us to fund 39 projects from around the world. My heartfelt congratulations to all of the students, faculty, and IEEE members involved with the projects!” Jamie Moesch, Managing Director, Educational Activities

The EPICS in IEEE Annual Report shares stories and highlights from 2023 made possible by generous contributions of EPICS in IEEE donors as well as our strategic partnerships.

“As the heart of IEEE charitable giving, the IEEE Foundation is proud to work side-by-side with EPICS in IEEE and our donors to help students leverage their newly acquired technical acumen to solve community challenges,” says Karen A. Galuchie, Executive Director, IEEE Foundation.

As we look ahead to 2024, the EPICS in IEEE Committee is thrilled to be celebrating the past, present, and future of our program through our 15th Anniversary Celebration.

This year was successful thanks to the strong partnerships we’ve maintained as well as the exciting new partnerships we’ve developed throughout the year,” says Stephanie Gillespie, 2023 EPICS in IEEE Committee chair. “We hope that you enjoy the review of our past year’s activities, and we encourage you to take part in our landmark anniversary celebration in 2024!”
