Graduate, Adult learners

ASSIST is contributing to increasing the diversification of the engineering professorate.  The project’s objective is being accomplished by engaging diverse early-career faculty, post-doctorial professionals, and graduate students through a collaboration of the leading national diversity-serving professional organizations supporting engineering.  This engagement supports the participants’ professional development and the expansion of their informal professional networks to include diverse colleagues. 

The ASSIST project is vital and historic because it brought together the seven largest national diversity-serving professional organizations to form a collaborative research partnership to proactively address the lack of diversity in engineering education.  These partners, in alphabetic order, include the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES), Great Minds in STEM (GMiS), Latinos in Science and Engineering (MAES), National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), Advancing Chicanos/Hispanics & Native Americans in Science (SACNAS), Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE), and Society of Women Engineers (SWE).  This video will focus on professional development opportunities delivered by Great Minds in STEM at the annual HENAAC conferences over the past two years, including best practices and lessons learned.
