Leadership Development to Promote Equity in Engineering Relationships
Please note that our next PEERs course has been moved to Spring Quarter 2015.
Dr. Joyce Yen, Program/Research Manager, UW ADVANCE Center for Institutional Change

Course Description: The seminar will enlist engineering students' energy, creativity, social conscience, and on-the-ground perspectives in improving the diversity environment in the UW College of Engineering. Students will explore topics such as diversity in science and engineering, impact of unconscious bias, community engagement, leadership, etc. The seminar will culminate in a student-developed short presentation which will be the core of presentations in the College of Engineering PEERs initiative. Students who successfully complete the seminar can apply for quarter-long internship opportunities as PEER Leaders.
