Leslie Tuplin, Instructor of Construction Management, May 2017.
“Franklin did a lot for me, so it’s always been a dream of mine to come back.”
With professional experience from some of the most famous Boston construction projects of our time, Leslie Tuplin ‘80 returned to BFIT in January 2017 as a professor to teach Construction Surveying.
Tuplin first enrolled at the Franklin Technical Institute right after graduating from high school in the late 1970s and obtained her associate degree in Architectural Engineering Technology. “I felt like I needed hands-on work,” she said. “I loved the one-on-one availability of professors at the college when I was a student.” And today her students experience the same in her classroom. Even when there is no class in session, Tuplin opens the Construction Management lab for students to talk with her, do homework or just to sit and reflect.
