Track 1


  1. Scholarships! How to Do More with Less

    Amanda S Parker, Vanessa Dunn, Sarah Miller
  2. At University of Colorado Boulder, our engineering diversity scholarship incorporates best practices for recruitment, retention and graduation, all woven together in a unique participation scholarship program. Our overall process, as well as our successes and challenges, will be shared in this presentation.


  4. Multi-Modal Spatial Visualization Workshop for First-Year Engineering Students: A Deeper Look

    Jacob Segil
  5. Come take a deeper look at a multi-modal spatial visualization workshop for first-year engineering students. An example workshop along with detailed statistical results from three semesters of data will be provided in the fast-paced High-Five format.


  7. Student Contract to Promote Inclusion

    Allison Palmer, Sarah Miller 

    Learn how a student contract can create a stronger culture of inclusion. This presentation will discuss how the BOLD Center at CU Boulder reinvigorated student engagement of our engineering student societies and positively changed our Center’s climate by implementing a student contract.


Track 3


  1. Creating a Welcoming Environment at National Conferences: The Mathematics Professional Societies' Joint Effort

    Jenna P. Carpenter  

    Effective strategies are needed to address the issue of sexual harassment at national conferences. The professional mathematics societies are implementing welcoming environment policies for meetings, at the urging of the Joint Committee on Women. This session reviews the history of this effort, as well as challenges encountered and best practices.


  3. Understanding Community Cultural Wealth for Engineering Students of Color

    Elizabeth Litzler, Cate Samuelson  

    Community cultural wealth is used to understand the success of students of color in engineering. We’ll present an overview of a study that explored types of community cultural wealth enlisted by African American and Latino engineering students, types of capital that contributed to student persistence and distinctions that emerged at the intersection of race and gender.


Track 4


  1. CETA Student Ambassadors and Leadership Program

    Ying Yu, Julie Spring, Hisham Alnajjar
  2. The CETA student ambassadors program is a success story of an all-women organization which is a combination of an honor society, a supportive community, a leadership program, and a functional organization that help the college recruit prospective students, and reach out to the local communities.


  4. Research Results on the Process of Beginning Academic Change

    Elizabeth Litzler, Cara Margherio
  5. Learn about the early stages of embarking on large-scale change projects, focusing on team building and stakeholder engagement. This talk will discuss early findings of our participatory action research with change agents who are engaged in making change on their campuses through the NSF Revolutionizing Engineering Departments (RED) Program.


  7. Empowering Women Students through Introductory Research Experiences

    Beverly Louie, Tanya Ennis, Vanessa Dunn 

    This presentation highlights students participating in research experiences that have instilled leadership skills while bolstering engineering identity. Introducing the practice of research to novice students in stages will be presented. Participants will learn about implementing introductory research experiences at their institutions.


  9. Broaden Participation Using Top High School GPAs

    Beth A Myers  

    The evidence is clear: diversity in the engineering workforce can be expanded now, with data-supported confidence, if engineering colleges aggressively admit more students who boast top high school performance yet have much lower standardized test scores than institutional averages.


  11. Helping Deans Meet Their Pledge: WEPAN’S Engineering Inclusive Teaching (EIT)-- Faculty Professional Development Project

    Glenda La Rue  

    Deans across the nation have pledged to fulfill their diversity and inclusion promises. WEPAN’s NSF GSE funded Engineering Inclusive Teaching (EIT): Faculty Professional Development Project provides innovative faculty professional development webinars that foster engineering faculty capacity to provide inclusive educational experiences for their students and complementary webinar downloadable resources.
