Faculty Support for Minority Engineering Programs.
Hackett, Rachelle Kisst; Martin, Gary R.
This study examined faculty support for programs that aid minority engineering students. A survey was designed and mailed to faculty at 112 randomly-selected engineering schools. A total of 91 faculty from 30 schools completed the survey. The study found that although there was general support for minority engineering programs (MEPs), there was great variability among the responses. Greatest support was found for financial and academic types of assistance, with less support for clustering of activities. The study also found that faculty from state schools, larger schools, and from schools located in the Midwest tended to give greater support to MEPs than faculty from private schools, smaller schools, and schools located in the East. A copy of the survey questionnaire is appended. (MDM)
