Formal research experiences for first year students: A key to greater diversity in computing?.

Stout JG, Tamer NB, Alvarado CJ.
UIID-AD: 4874
2018;693-698. doi: 10.1145/3159450.3159472.

Underrepresented students in computing (women and non-White/non-Asian men) are known to feel a weaker sense of belonging than majority students (Asian/White men). This difference is important because a low sense of belonging can lead to disengagement and attrition in...

An interdisciplinary undergraduate research experience program in electrical and computer engineering-lessons learned through 6 years of program operations.

Dean BK, Rawashdeh OA.
UIID-AD: 4792

The NSF-funded Research Experience for Undergraduate (REU) program titled "Interdisciplinary Research Experience in Electrical and Computer Engineering (IREECE)" has run for 6 consecutive years at Oakland University. The 10-week summer program ran in 2010-2012, was renewed in 2013, and...

Development and implementation of an introduction to research winter internship program for underrepresented community college students.

Enriquez AG, Langhoff NP.
UIID-AD: 4833

Despite increasingly urgent calls to broaden the participation of underrepresented minorities (URMs) in engineering, not much progress has been achieved. Since 2000, underrepresented minorities' shares in engineering and physical science degrees have been flat despite a rapid increase in...

A methodological evaluation of an integrative pedagogy for engineering education.

Moloney C, Rosales J, Badenhorst C.
UIID-AD: 4251
2016; doi: 10.1109/FIE.2016.7757704.

This paper is an evaluation of the pedagogy of a five-day co-curricular course, called the "Lead by Design Institute on Leadership, Diversity and Dialogue For Graduate Students in Engineering." The intentions in the design of the pedagogy were: to...

A Quarter century of resounding success for a University/Federal Laboratory partnership.

Whalin RW, Pagán-Trinidad I, Villanueva E, Pittman DW.
UIID-AD: 4327

The objective of this paper is to evaluate, assess and document initiation and evolution of a vibrant enduring University (Minority Serving Institution, MSI) and federal laboratory partnership originated by the US Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) to...

Accounting for the role of policy in the underrepresentation of women in computer science.

Patitsas E.
UIID-AD: 4260
2016;271-272. doi: 10.1145/2960310.2960343.

Since the 1990s, a great deal of e ort has been toward im-proving female participation in computing. Yet the numbers in North America haven't budged: women continue to make up 18% of CS majors. Current efforts and research focus...

After school matters: Expanding the time to engage minority middle School Girls in STEM.

Luster-Teasley S, Minor RC, Alford VG.
UIID-AD: 4235

An increase in the diversity of the U.S. pipeline for students entering STEM fields is significantly needed. This is especially true for minority and female students interested in pursuing opportunities in STEM careers. The North Carolina A&T State University...

ASEE safe zone workshops and virtual community of practice to promote LGBTQ equality in engineering.

Cech EA, Farrell S, Guerra RCC, Minerick A, Waidzunas TJ.
UIID-AD: 4170

Even though recent years have seen significant advances in LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer) equality in the U.S. through legislation and social acceptance, research shows that LGBTQ students and faculty on college campuses still experience exclusion and...

Diversity in K-12 CS education across the U.S.

Hong H, Wang J, Moghadam SH.
UIID-AD: 4320
2016; doi: 10.1109/RESPECT.2016.7836166.

This multi-year research study examines knowledge and perceptions of computer science (CS), disparities in access, and barriers to offering CS. In particular, the analysis identifies differences by demographic to gain insight into inequities in CS. The first year of...

Enhancing mechanics education through shared assessment design.

Hadgraft RG, Lowe D, Lawson J.
UIID-AD: 4199

There is considerable commonality between engineering undergraduate programs in terms of content, pedagogies, course structures and assessment practices, particularly in terms of engineering fundamentals such as mechanics. Despite this, and the availability of an array of online resources, there...

Fundamental research: Characterizing underrepresented students' interest in engineering careers and their teachers' beliefs about practices.

Svihla V.
UIID-AD: 4306

Despite efforts to diversify engineering, gaps persist, with few Latino/as becoming engineers. The Southwest US is an ideal place to characterize student interest development in engineering, and to relate that interest to perceptions of instructional practices. This study contributes...

Into the light: Diffusing ccontroversy and increasing transparency in the faculty salary equity study process.

Bailey MB, Marchetti CE.
UIID-AD: 4238

Women are underrepresented in most science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) disciplines within academe and the workforce. In response, the National Science Foundation launched the ADVANCE grant program in the early 2000's to fund efforts which increase the representation...
