Building Research Capacity for Underserved Communities in Engineering is an NSF sponsored working conference brings together experts from around the country to develop a national research agenda for broadening engineering participation by persons self-identifying as: having disabilities,veterans, low income/first-generation persons and persons of LGBTQ+ identity. The 1 & 1/2 day working conference at Clemson University to “bring to the table” leading researchers, scholars, and practitioners to take part in a dialogue about broadening participation in engineering (NSF grant #1551605).

The application deadline is August 1, 2016.
Together, we will tackle difficult questions like:
- What theories, critical questions and methodologies can promote intersectional research in engineering education?
- How do current methodological decisions reproduce marginalization of underrepresented and underserved students?
- How does the nature of funding agencies influence what is done in engineering education research?
