IEC's Academic Members work together to tackle issues of engineering and diversity through programming, workshops, building relationships and shaping the direction of workforce readiness. Ultimately, IEC members build relationships, form partnership opportunities through co-teaching and resesarch and strive to make the engineering world more diverse and just.
IEC Academic Members fall into two distinct categories:
IEC Affiliate Members include representatives from academic institutions with a history of partnership and respect for the talent and capabilities of the MSI community.
IEC Sustaining Members are asked to join by invitation only, and include active participants from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs), Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs), and other Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs).
