The goal of this planning grant is to complete initiation and planning phases for the Coalition for Innovation, Education and Research in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Hispanic Serving Institutions (ECE@HSI) with the overarching goal of supporting broadening participation in electrical and computer engineering. ECE@HSI aims at
• Promoting dialogue by involving a broad community of academic institutions and stakeholders to effectively address issues associated with broadening participation in ECE;
• Promoting evidence-based strategies to support Hispanic students at critical stages in the ECE academic pipeline to improve recruitment, retention and degree completion at HSIs; and
• Providing ECE@HSI students technical, research, and professional skill sets and the knowledge to engage effectively with the NASA enterprise workforce.
This workshop series is based upon work supported by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration under Grant 80NSSC20K1769 from the NASA Minority University Research and Education Project (MUREP)
