Diversity and NSF Grantees Poster Session
This paper and poster describes a model for research community engagement in developing a national research agenda. The model was developed for a recent NSF- funded working conference held in the fall of 2016. The goal of the one-and-a-half day meeting was to develop a research agenda for broadening participation in engineering by persons self-identifying as having disabilities, veterans, low income/first-generation college students, and persons of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer (LGBTQ+) identity.
The conference attracted 70 participants from around the country who represent multiple levels in the education system—from pre-college, two-year, and four-year colleges. Participants included a diverse set of stakeholders including researchers, educators, administrators, practitioners, and other thought leaders from a variety of disciplines relevant to broadening participation.
The model described offers a detailed process by which authors engaged experts in research and practice before and during the event to identify existing research and new research possibilities regarding engineering participation by persons from these underserved communities by addressing relevant theories, research questions, methods, and practices.
