Introducing the Husky Exchange Program

We are excited to officially introduce the Husky Exchange Program. This program will set up drop-off sites at accessible locations in all residence halls to collect reusable but unwanted items from residents as they move out in the spring.

We will then sort the items and donate them to local organizations or resell/give them back to students in the fall. This is a great way for us to reduce waste on campus, and pay it forward to our students and community members.

All funds from the fall sale will go towards student-led sustainability initiatives. The program will run from Thursday (April 22) through Wednesday, April 28.

We will be collecting pool noodles, non-perishable food items, box fans, lamps and lights, laundered sheets, clothing, and small, clean, appliances. We are still in need of volunteers to make this work.

Please consider volunteering for one or more shifts on this form by Wednesday (April 21). We will reach out to all volunteers with more details about the shifts before the start of the program. If you have any questions, please email

A big thanks to the students, staff, and the Tech Forward Initiative on Sustainability and Resilience that made this inaugural round of the Husky Exchange possible.

Buettner Named Men's Basketball Head Coach

Michigan Tech Men's Basketball Associate Head Coach Josh Buettner has been elevated to head coach, following the retirement of Kevin Luke on Thursday (Apr. 15). Buettner becomes the 12th head coach in program history, effective immediately.

"Coach Buettner has the playing, coaching, and recruiting experience to lead our men's basketball program," Michigan Tech Athletic Director Suzanne Sanregret said. "Over the past 13 years, he has demonstrated the core values that we look for in coaches at Michigan Tech with loyalty, passion, integrity, tradition, teamwork, and a commitment to academic and athletic success. I am very excited to work with Josh and confident that he will continue the tradition of excellence."

"I am honored to be named the head coach of the Michigan Tech men's basketball program," Buettner said. "I would like to thank Dr. Sanregret for giving me the opportunity to lead this team that I care so deeply about. I'm excited to work to continue the standards and success that Coach Luke has built. We have a terrific group of young men, and we will work to have a team that will make the university, alumni, and community proud."

Buettner was appointed associate head coach prior to the start of the 2020-21 season and served the last 13 seasons as assistant coach after taking the position in July 2008. He has been the chief recruiter for the Huskies, responsible for bringing in top talent, which has included five All-Americans and seven All-GLIAC First Team selections.

A Shawano, Wisconsin native, Buettner began as a star student-athlete at Michigan Tech, playing for the Huskies from 2001-05 as a power forward/center. He is a two-time All-American and earned GLIAC Player of the Year honors his junior and senior seasons. Buettner finished his collegiate career third on Tech's all-time scoring chart with 2,061 points.

Kevin Luke added, "I'm very excited for Coach Buettner. He will be an excellent head coach. I'm looking forward to him continuing and building on the program's successes!"

Following graduation, Buettner played professionally in Europe for three years in leagues in Denmark, Switzerland, and Iceland, and was named the Danish Elite League Player of the Year in his second pro campaign. He also spent a year coaching high school aged players on skill development in Svendborg, Denmark.

In addition to his coaching duties at Tech, Buettner teaches classes in the Kinesiology and Integrated Physiology Department. Read the full story on

Career Guidance for Mid-career Faculty

The Advanced Career Management (ACM) program will hold an “Office Hour” for mid-career faculty from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.on Thursday, April 22 on Zoom.

All mid-career (post-tenure) faculty who would like to talk about career-related topics with a senior faculty member are welcome. Mid-career faculty often lack resources and opportunities for one-on-one guidance in making career decisions.

Yet post-tenure faculty face compounded challenges including renewing or changing research directions and funding; managing excellence in both teaching and research; and taking on leadership roles on campus and professionally.

Career guidance and mentoring can be invaluable in recognizing and developing rewarding post-tenure career trajectories. The accomplished full professors who are participating as ACM career Guides in this event include (alphabetically) Will Cantrell (Physics, Associate Provost and Dean of the Graduate School), Rupali Datta (BioSci), Shiyue Fang (Chem), Adrienne Minerick (ChE and Interim Dean of Pavlis Honors College) and Judith Perlinger (CEE).

The ADVANCE PI team invites mid-career faculty members to register for a 30-minute meeting with one of these senior faculty members. To register for a meeting, email Patty Sotirin. Spaces are limited so please register soon.

Society of Women Engineers Attend the

SWE-Wisconsin Spring Forward Professional Day

On April 10, Katy Pioch (Mechanical Engineering Junior), Sophie Stewart (Mechanical Engineering Junior), Aleah Hummel (Civil Engineering, Sophomore), Aerith Cruz (Management Information Systems, First-Year), and Gretchen Hein (SWE Advisor and MMET) attended the SWE-Wisconsion Spring Forward Professional Day virtually.

Pioch gave the introductory welcome address. Stewart and Cruz gave a presentation and workshop summarizing our outreach efforts where with support from a Society of Women Engineers (SWE) Program Development Grant, the College of Engineering and Civil and Environmental Engineering, the section has virtually met with over 500 local and regional youth.

During the Spring Forward Celebration, Hummel was awarded the Society of Women Engineers- Wisconsin Section Martha Maxwell Memorial Endowed Scholarship.

The goal of the scholarship program is “To honor Martha Maxwell's memory and continue fostering her excitement about engineering, math, and science for young girls and women.” At the event, Hummel was recognized for her work as the Evening With Industry chair and her internship where she worked on various construction projects. Scholarships are important for all students; here is what this one means to Alli: “I am very honored and grateful to be the recipient of the Martha Maxwell Memorial Endowed Scholarship. Being a part of SWE helps me grow academically and professionally. I am excited to continue my involvement in SWE as I progress throughout my academic and professional career.”

Hein notes that “Alli is a joy to have in class and is planning to continue her work with Evening with Industry in the fall. She is truly a person who exemplifies the goals of this scholarship”. Audra Morse, Chair of Civil and Environmental Engineering, stated that “The Civil and Environmental Engineering Department is proud of Alli's scholastic achievements and her involvement in SWE. Congratulations to Alli for receiving a SWE-WI scholarship!”

The SWE Section at Michigan Tech recognizes the contributions of our members who presented at the professional day, and members, like Alli, who are recognized for their academic and societal efforts. We thank everyone for their support of SWE at Michigan Tech.
