Why Donate?

According to data collected by the American Society for Engineering Education, in 2012, underrepresented racial/ethnic minorities earned only 12.6% of all bachelor’s degrees, 7.9% of all master’s degrees and 4.6% of all doctoral degrees in engineering across all 345 degree granting institutions. The diversity of engineering faculty ranks is significantly smaller, particularly as the rank increases.

Underrepresented racial/ethnic minorities constitute 8.6% of all assistant professors, 8.7% of associate professors, and 5.8% of full professors. Corporate citizens remained challenged in diversifying its talent pool as well.
