Robert Pond, Ph.D., teaches engineering at Loyola, with a focus on the natural and applied sciences. Pond, who earned his M.E.S. in Mechanics from Johns Hopkins in 1965 and his M.S. and Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from University of Pennsylvania in 1968 and 1970, respectively, is also the director of The Next Step, a five-week summer program at Loyola in partnership with Roland Park Country School. The Next Step is a two-pronged program for rising female sophomores at participating Baltimore City schools that affords girls the opportunity to spend two days per week on SAT prep and three days a week focused on STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), fields in which females are underrepresented. The STEM subjects are taught by science, math, and engineering faculty at Loyola. Dr. Pond was also one of six faculty who represented Loyola in the 2015 Pathways to Innovation Program, a national initiative designed to help institutions fully incorporate innovation and entrepreneurship into undergraduate engineering education.
