What is Engineering PLUS?

The Engineering PLUS Alliance, funded at $10 million over 5 years, is one of 17 National Science Foundation (NSF) INCLUDES Alliances of higher education institutions and the only Alliance focused on engineering. NSF INCLUDES is a nationwide initiative designed to build U.S. leadership in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) by increasing the participation of individuals from groups that have been historically underrepresented in STEM.

  • Regional Hubs

    Regional Hubs are helmed by the leaders of NSF-funded Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP), experts in supporting STEM students to B.S. and graduate degree completion. Regional institutions that become Hub members will learn about the high-impact practices that are successful in increasing diversity in engineering education. The Hubs will be the engines of national institutional change.

  • stEm PEERs

    The Engineering PLUS Alliance will train, empower, resource and support a national network of stEm* PEERs (Practitioners Enhancing Engineering Regionally), change agents who will accelerate the implementation of high-impact, evidence-based practices within their home institutions and beyond. *ā€œEā€ emphasizes Engineering in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics.

Collaborating Organizations

Engineering PLUS is designed to build an infrastructure to support sustainability and scale-up of successful interventions through collaboration and partnerships. Each of the Key Performance Strategy (KPS) groups work closely with its collaborators to achieve the overall project goals. Below is a current list of the collaborating organizations that work with each KPS group. This list will evolve over the course of the grant as new collaborators, members and partners become part of the Alliance.
