Each of the four Areas of Region 1 had an iSTEP event coupled with training of the local Section Chairs and interested members. Only reached about students at each event due to late start. Feedback was evaluated and a face-to-face training session held Plans are in process to incorporate iSTEP training in the 2012 R1 SAC and 2012 R1 Training Workshop. iSTEP materials and letters are in prgoress and expected to be completed 2011 Project Metrics Evaluation - iSTEP Model Changes: Number of mentor/mentee Relationships matched - > 20 annual The original iSTEP Mentoring Model was not possible to accomplish in a single afternoon. Instead an overview of mentoring possible through IEEE activities is presented.
