General Announcements, Detailed:
1. CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: ASEE 90-day Equity Challenge
The ASEE 90-day Equity Challenge is underway!
Engineering and engineering technology (E&ET) student organizations offer opportunities for students to develop peer networks, gain valuable co-curricular experiences, apply knowledge acquired in the classroom to real-world challenges, and prepare for future success in the workplace. Participation in engineering student organizations can offer students access to career opportunities including mentoring, internships/co-ops, job opportunities. The access and experiences that these opportunities afford are valuable and formative for an engineering student’s success and persistence. But the question we should ask ourselves is: are all students able to take advantage of, and benefit from, these opportunities?
In this 90-day Equity Challenge, ASEE’s Commission on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusivity has challenged the leaders of student organizations to identify and address barriers that exist within the local chapter of their organization which may prevent equitable and inclusive engagement by all students. At the end of the 90-day challenge, fifteen (15) teams will be selected to win a $1,000 prize for their organization, have their work highlighted on a national platform, and be featured in multiple press releases.

2. CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) at the Department of Engineering Education at Utah State University
Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) at the Department of Engineering Education at Utah State University
The Department of Engineering Education at Utah State University will hold a ten-week summer Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program https://engineering.usu.edu/eed/reu/annoucement, starting May 16, 2022, to provide undergraduate students (in either 4-year or 2-year schools) in a science, technology (including engineering technology), engineering, or mathematics (STEM) discipline with intensive experience in engineering education research, such as how learners’ experience, background, and perception play a role when they learn engineering knowledge and skills.
The central theme of the REU program is “Problem Solving in Engineering Education.” The program will be conducted in two phases: Phase 1 – Pre REU Site Program (May 16 – 27, 2022); and Phase 2 -REU Site Program (May 30 – July 22, 2022). Phases 1 consists of preparatory and foundational work that will be conducted at the participant’s own educational institution/home-base and through distance mentoring, Phase 2 will be conducted at USU campus in Logan and will be face-to-face. This REU Site program is carefully designed to offer opportunities for each REU participant to engage in authentic and funded research tasks, both individually and collaboratively, as well as an opportunity to gain experience in managing the team project deliverables.
Each REU student will receive up to $8,450, including 1) a stipend of $6,000, 2) a housing and meal allowance of $1,700, and 3) up to $750 for a round-trip airfare ticket to travel between their distant location and USU.
The applicants must be at least 18 years old by the time the program starts on May 16, 2022, must be a citizen, national, or permanent resident of the United States, must be an undergraduate student who will not graduate before September 1, 2022 (in either 4-year or 2-year schools) with a good academic standing in a professional undergraduate program in science, technology (including engineering technology), engineering, or mathematics.
The deadline of application is March 7, 2022. Interested students must submit applications online via https://engineering.usu.edu/eed/reu/application. If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Oenardi Lawanto at firstname.lastname@example.org or Dr. Wade Goodridge at email@example.com.
3. EVENT ANNOUNCEMENT: Engineering Education Programs (M.S. and Ph.D.) Open House at the University of Cincinnati
Join us for a Virtual Open House to learn more about the Engineering Education! During this virtual introduction to our programs, we will also be discussing our face-to-face Open House to be held January 28-29, 2022.
Virtual Open House Date: December 15, 2021 – 5:00-6:30 PM EST
The Department of Engineering Education in the University of Cincinnati’s College of Engineering and Applied Science is accepting applications for M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Engineering Education to further the research and study of how to best educate engineering students at all levels. Graduate students will gain expertise in theories related to the teaching and learning of engineering, research methodologies, and advancement in their chosen technical engineering discipline. Specializations include higher education, pre-K-12 engineering education, or industry and workforce development.
