Diversity and NSF Grantees Poster Session
The goal of our NSF funded project is to change the culture of engineering and computer science departments by creating, implementing, and assessing new curriculum aimed at developing inclusive professional identities in students. Students with inclusive professional identities possess the necessary technical skills for their discipline and also recognize the value of diverse skills and perspectives in designing new technology and solving problems. With this recognition they strive to work in inclusive ways to take full advantage of diversity. This project builds on a previous NSF funded pilot in first year courses at one institution to study the transfer of curriculum to three other institutions, to develop curriculum for sophomore and junior year courses, and to study students longitudinally. Our poster will include a discussion of project goals, a sample of curricular activities, and preliminary findings from the first year of the project and directions for future development. We are excited to participate in the NSF grantees poster session to help us identify more partner institutions in this effort.
