NSF ENGINEERING DIRECTOR SPEAKS TO UNDERGRADS AND THOSE SUPPORTING STEM STUDENT SUCCESS ON APR 26
Undergraduates in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), and UCI staff and faculty supporting STEM student success are invited to an April 26 forum and lunch with National Science Foundation (NSF) Program Director James Luther Moore III. Moore presents on practical ways for students and campus representatives to support engineering career preparation, graduate education, and STEM funding. The program begins at noon at Calit2 Auditorium.
Dr. Moore is national leader for the NSF Broadening Participation in Engineering (BPE) program, which aims to broaden inclusion in engineering for all students with a specific focus on those groups currently underrepresented in the engineering workforce. Moore also is a distinguished professor of urban education, and was the inaugural executive director of the Todd Anthony Bell National Resource Center on the African American Male and the former associate provost for diversity and inclusion at The Ohio State University. He draws upon decades of research and funding expertise to discuss meaningful approaches for students and campus supporters to improve engineering talent development.
This presentation is part of an ongoing series examining This Is What a Scientist/Engineer Looks Like. This spring event is co-sponsored by the UCI Office of Inclusive Excellence, The Henry Samueli School of Engineering and the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences Office of Access & Inclusion, and Calit2.
