Diversity and Undergraduate Education
Aligned with the mission and vision of our Women in Engineering Program at the University of Maryland College Park, our engineering Living and Learning Community (LLC) programs seek to cultivate inclusive and diverse communities of support and success. Over the past year, we have revised, piloted, and implemented intentionally-crafted diversity and inclusion curriculum into our LLC programs seminars. This content includes understanding diversity and inclusion concepts and terminology, social identities, the importance of diversity and inclusion in the engineering context, socialization, unconscious bias, and tools for interrupting implicit bias. In addition, our curriculum incorporates ethics in engineering and engineering social responsibility. Our paper will describe our strategies, challenges, and experiences in developing and implementing diversity and inclusion curriculum within our engineering living and learning programs, and discuss ways to consider incorporating diversity and inclusion programs and practices in various engineering contexts.
