Undergraduate Race and Ethnicity Initiative
With funding from the National Science Foundation, Michigan Engineering is creating a Teaching Engineering Equity (TEE) Center. The goal of the Center will be to create teaching environments where equity-centered values are present in both technical content and teaching style, leading to engineering education where students from a variety of backgrounds will experience inclusion and belonging, and engineering solutions that help to close critical gaps and elevate all people. This project will
- Design an evidence-based framework for creating an equity in engineering centered curriculum,
- Generate a library of DEI learning activities within specific engineering contexts and disciplines, and
- Develop a replicable and adaptive training and implementation infrastructure for engineering instructors and mentors to use the learning activities.
