Engineering Deans to Promote Diversity

Yesss! At the early August White House Demo Day, 100 engineering deans — through the American Society for Engineering Education — said that they would develop diversity plans for their institutions, create at least one K-12 or community college “pipeline activity” to attract a more diverse pool of students to their institutions, and promote partnerships with non-Ph.D. granting engineering colleges that serve groups that are under-represented in engineering.
