Gateway Engineering Education Coalition
MINORITIES IN ENGINEERING
The Gateway Coalition Minorities leadership group includes the minority program directors or multi-cultural directors from our Coalition institutions. A number of programs have been undertaken during these past few years at each of our partner institutions. These have included: bridge programs, sensitivity training, mentoring programs, summer research opportunities, and community outreach.
While the Gateway leadership continues to encourage such programs we have made some specific program focus decisions. When possible, we want to be a catalyst for change and leverage Gateway support to serve as seed support with other efforts. Where possible, we desire that supportive programs specifically geared to assist with increasing the percentage of minorities in Engineering be imbedded within the broader culture of the educational mission for all students.
