IOE-EER WORKSHOP: “Making A Difference, Finding Meaning & Having Fun” — Dann Engels
In partnership, the Department of Industrial and Operations Engineering (IOE) and the Engineering Education Research Program (EER) will be hosting a dynamic Virtual Mentoring Workshop Series. The aim of this series is to help foster an engaging and inclusive environment for students, faculty, and staff.
Workshop sessions will feature guest speakers across industry, research and DEI professions, and the special series itself is designed with a specific focus to facilitate conversations, build connections and empower self-reflection opportunities to support students’ journeys within the mentoring process as a whole.
This series is open to all College of Engineering students, faculty and staff. Registration is required. Please RSVP early to attend and the Zoom information will be sent prior to the event.
