From Nothing to Something
A national group of engineering educators at secondary, 2-year, and 4-year schools is developing a cooperative coali-tion to build effective alternative pathways for students to receive degrees in engineering. Collaborations are being formed to establish systems and implement methods with the goal of reversing the current trend of declining engi-neering enrollment and increasing the number of students from underrepresented groups who pursue engineering careers. The conference that initiated this project was held at Itasca Community College (ICC) because of the leadership and success that the college has demonstrated in achieving these goals.
