Graduate, Adult learners

LEVERAGE, led by an alliance of the seven largest national diversity-serving engineering professional organizations, is designing, developing and testing strategies to inform how best to strengthen engineering education by increasing the number of historically underrepresented faculty in engineering. The INCLUDES pilot will support the alliance's longer-term objective to construct a fully integrated system for faculty transition stages to double the number of historically underrepresented engineering faculty by 2025.  Partner organizations include:

  • American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES)
  • Great Minds in STEM™ (GMiS)
  • MAES, Latinos in Science and Engineering (MAES)
  • National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE)
  • Society for Advancement of Hispanics/Chicanos and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS)
  • Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE)
  • Society of Women Engineers (SWE)

The LEVERAGE partner organizations are professional affinity groups that support the professional development, persistence and success of diverse engineers traveling along academic career pathways, allowing their careers to be set within their cultural context.  Collectively, these organizations have 300 years of experience supporting and celebrating women and the historically underrepresented in pursuing engineering careers.

LEVERAGE programs provide mechanisms for strengthening informal professional networks, for professional development, and for creating discipline and/or research specific affinity group affiliations. LEVERAGE programs are created to have a direct impact on participant productivity and well-being.
