How is the COVID-19 crisis impacting traditionally underrepresented students in engineering—and how can faculty and administrators better support these students in fall 2020 and beyond? Addressing this question, this webinar features preliminary insights and lessons learned from two NSF RAPID grants.

In this webinar, Kenneth Connor (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute) will discuss how COVID-19 is impacting engineering programs at Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) served by the Inclusive Engineering Consortium and how lessons learned can improve student learning experiences, programs, and processes. Racheida Lewis (University of Georgia) will explore how the pandemic is affecting underrepresented engineering students and how students’ stories can help institutions ensure that minority students aren’t left out of major decisions.
