New Article on Broadening Participation at Engineering Research Centers

Scott Bellman, DO-IT Staff

Engineering Research Centers (ERCs) are at the cutting edge of new technology and scientific discoveries. Without a diverse range of people, ERCs can’t reach their full potential. DO-IT and the Center for Neurotechnology (CNT) have teamed up in AccessERC to make sure the CNT is as diverse and inclusive as possible. Assistant Diversity Director Scott Bellman, Diversity Director Sheryl Burgstahler, and CNT leader Eric Chudler published an article to help promote inclusivity in other ERCs.

Their article, “Broadening Participation by Including More Individuals With Disabilities in STEM: Promising Practices From an Engineering Research Center” was published by American Behavioral Scientist. Read the full article and see more resources for creating an fully inclusive ERC.
