Minorities in Engineering
Change within any organization is difficult at best, but can be difficult when competing against better funded organizations, organizational history, and lack of funding. This is especially true when desiring to enhance the diversity of the engineering student body and ensure all students whether within full-time day and full-time evening programs feel a part of the department culture. This paper will present current programs and results of both externally and internally funded activities initiated to enhance inclusivity and diversity, and to enhance retention of diverse students through building community. These programs were supported by NSF grants, corporate funds, operational funds, discretionary funds, and sheer will power and vision.
