Over the past few years, ABET has been changing to be more effective, innovative, and relevant to the emerging needs of engineering education world-wide. The goal of this session is to reintroduce ABET – the organization of today – to our Nation’s Deans of Engineering. Speakers will briefly share information on organizing for greater engagement; training evaluators for higher quality reviews; re-articulating a position on diversity and inclusivity; and adapting through criteria changes. The session will also include an interactive exercise to elicit feedback.
