About the Opportunity
The Director of the Engineering PLUS Alliance Project collaborates with leadership to support key activities of the Engineering PLUS Alliance, working to working collaboratively to enhance U.S. leadership with the major focus on diversity, inclusion and broadening participation in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Oversees the Engineering PLUS Backbone team, which focuses on operational areas such as administrative data management, project management, marketing and communications, event management and support, financial reporting, IRB processing, systems support, and other processes vital to the success of the Engineering PLUS Alliance. The Project Director will also serve as the liaison between the Engineering PLUS Alliance, the NSF INCLUDES Coordination Hub, and other national efforts to increase representation of engineering.
Interact with key partners including, but not limited to, Northeastern's College of Engineering, the Engineering PLUS Alliance collaborators, Northeastern's Office of the Provost, and the NSF INCLUDES Coordination Hub, with a goal building a collective alliance of networked communities is needed to build an inclusive infrastructure that will drive and sustain the systemic change needed to markedly increase the diversity of engineering students enrolled and graduating across the country.
The Engineering PLUS Alliance is designed to build this critical infrastructure through well-crafted partnerships. For example, the NSF Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP) program and the network of BIPOC and women engineering society chapters have the potential of making a lasting impact at scale. Moreover, Northeastern University (NU) has over 30 years of experience implementing programs focused on broadening participation in engineering.
Our vision for the Engineering PLUS Alliance is to achieve transformative, systemic and sustainable change that will increase the growth rate in the number of BIPOC and women obtaining undergraduate and graduate engineering degrees. By driving the growth of engineering undergraduate degrees, we aim to increase the annual number of degrees awarded these populations to 100,000/30,000 (BS/MS-PhD) and establish a future growth rate that can substantially close the aforementioned gaps. Our mission is to implement the strategy posed by our hypothesis, with emphasis on fostering systems changes at key transition points of educational pathways.
