To promote the goals of the American Society of Civil Engineers, the
Board of Direction has adopted official Policy Statements on major
technical, professional and educational issues of interest to the civil
engineering community and the nation.
ASCE has members throughout the world. Many policy statements were created to address issues of particular interest in the United States. Other policy statements are pertinent throughout the world. So that ASCE members can easily identify the geographic coverage of each policy statement, those that have worldwide application are so identified.
Listed here are the complete texts of the Society's 173 current policy documents. These statements reflect the Board of Direction actions through October 14, 2019 and support ASCE's Public Policy Mission.
