College of Engineering putting diversity front and center

The PEERs (Promoting Equity in Engineering Relationships) Program, funded with a five-year grant from the National Science Foundation, exposes undergraduates to issues of bias, both subtle and overt, within engineering disciplines. The cornerstone of PEERs is a one-credit course offered in Autumn Quarter, which culminates in public presentations by course participants for the college’s faculty, staff and students. Students who complete the seminar become PEER Leaders and give presentations to various groups on and off campus, like those on their calendar of events.
