Diversity and NSF Grantees Poster Session
The National Science Foundation’s Revolutionizing Engineering and computer science Departments (RED) grant was awarded to the Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) Department at Midsized Northeastern University in 2016. This RED grant enables the institution to improve the inclusion of underrepresented and underserved minorities over the course of five years. The grant is focused on diversity and inclusion as a means to improve the intellectual and social development of all students in our engineering program. The CEE Department established a research group called Revolutionizing Engineering Diversity (RevED) to address the initiatives behind the RED grant that include (but are not limited to) recruitment, inclusive pedagogy, student perception of campus climate, and faculty development. The RevED team is currently in the third year of the grant, where it is trying to capitalize on understanding the impacts the grant is having on the faculty and students. This poster intends to show a variety of the developments made in enabling faculty to be trained in issues in diversity and inclusion. The poster will also show how the grant has impacted the students through data garnered from surveys and focus groups. The poster will also show how the CEE student body has changed between the years prior to the grant and how they are progressing now with respect to demographics and how they perceive the development of diversity and inclusion on campus. We will also showcase our engagement with partners within the university which have helped us initiate grander changes across the intuition. As the RevED team expands its offerings to the institution, we will also show how we are developing materials for dissemination to influence the university and any other intuition who wishes to develop their own ability to be inclusive.
