Leadership Capacity Building for Manufacturing Education Sinclair Community College in partnership with Purdue University Calumet and IvyTech Community College was awarded a National Science Foundation Advanced TechnicalEducation (NSF-ATE) project grant. The project is designed to: deliver a comprehensiveleadership capacity building program, prepare effective academic leaders for manufacturing andmanufacturing related academic programs, prepare master teachers for high school pre-engineering program, and align existing manufacturing curriculum with the four pillars ofManufacturing knowledge. The project is based on up-to-date research on teaching and learning,and the problems experienced by U.S. manufacturing technology programs, as well as studies bySociety for Manufacturing Engineers. The project takes into consideration the rapid knowledgechange in the manufacturing sector within the framework of the Four Pillars of ManufacturingKnowledge: Materials and Processes; Product, Tooling and Assembly; System and Operators;and Competitiveness. The project is in its second year. The first cohort of 15 participants represented programs at11 institutions across 10 states. This paper describes the assessment, and evaluation of projectoutcomes for the participants in the first cohort. Continuous improvement of the program basedon such assessment and evaluation are also discussed.
