1 Recruiting Today's Engineering Students to Become Tomorrow's Teachers Session : :30 AM

2 Who Are We?  Dr. Tesfay Meressi: Co-PI Noyce TF/MTF Grant School of Engineering, UMass-Dartmouth  Dr. Patricia Trina Crowley: PI Noyce Scholar’s Grant ~The Center for University, School & Community Partnerships (CUSP), School of Education, Public Policy & Civic Engagement (SEPPCE), UMass- Dartmouth  Kym Welty: NSF/NOYCE Programs Coordinator ~CUSP, SEPPCE, UMass-Dartmouth  Justin Mare & Matt Huberman : Current NOYCE SCHOLARS at UMass-Dartmouth

3 School of Engineering University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Overwhelming majority of UMD Engineering students come from MA high schools. Only 17 out of 293 are from other states. 71% Engineering freshman stay for second year  8% Change major  21% Left for various reasons---academic dismissal, etc. Overwhelming majority of UMD Engineering students come from MA high schools.

4 UMD School of Engineering 6 year Graduation Rate: 32% 32% of students who entered as UMD Engineering freshman graduate within 6 years.  Of those 32%: 35% come from out of state 17% graduate within 6 years from UMD with another degree. 51% Left UMD or take longer t han six years. UMD School of Engineering six-year graduation rate is 32%

5 What is the PROBLEM?  U MD NOYCE efforts to recruit STEM candidates from the engineering schoolhave been difficult.  Few engineering students in the pool ofpossible NOYCE recruits haveexpressed an interest in teaching as aprofession.

6  Noyce candidates have told us that they were not prepared for entry level engineering content material and had a superficial and inaccurate concept of what engineering entailed What Do Our Candidates Say?

7 Ratio of Males/Females Attending Information Sessions

8 Ratio of STEM Majors Attending Information Sessions

9 Makeup of Noyce Scholar Cohorts Over Past Four Years (Eleven Noyce Scholars)

10 What Do We Hope to Do Today?  To Provide the structure for sharing informative and interesting points about our program in relation to other programs.  To answer the following 3 questions with the freedom to add your own comments anytime throughout the hour.

11 Questions for Discussion 1) How can we attract high school students into engineering programs of study?

12 Question and Points for Discussion 2) How can we prepare high school students for entry- level engineering courses of study?  Point for discussion: What courses and content material do engineering students need to know in order to transition successfully?  Point for discussion: How might engineering graduates inform high school level efforts to develop programs aligned with college entry-level expectations

13 Participants? 3) How might we recruit more engineering graduates into the NOYCE SCHOLARS PROGRAM?
