ATE Central Spring Sustainability Webinar Series

Posted by on .

Associated image

To help support project and center sustainability planning and activities, and in collaboration with ITHAKA S&R, ATE Central has been offering webinars and workshops each year on an array of sustainability-related topics. This season, Rachael Bower from ATE Central and Nancy Maron, from BlueSky to BluePrint, will focus on topics useful to centers and projects at all stages of growth. This series addresses three critical angles – first, a basic “health check” to see how your project or center is faring today; second, strategies for moving forward, with a refreshed set of goals and priorities; and finally, taking to heart the need to plan for changes concerning the most valuable asset any project has: its people.

Webinar 1: Taking Stock and Planning for Success 
Tuesday, February 6, 2018 1:00 pm EST

How well is your project or center doing today? Where do you want it to be tomorrow? In this session, we will introduce a series of questions - a basic “health check tool” - you can start asking that will help you identify areas of strength that you may want to develop even further, and areas of vulnerability that you will want to address. Topics we...

New from Pew: Women in STEM jobs experience high levels of inequality at work

Posted by on .

Associated image

A new report from the Pew Research Center provides data, much of it disturbing, about the experiences of  women in the STEM workforce – including discrimination and hostility. Women who work in male-majority workplaces seem to experience the highest levels of discrimination (78%) in comparison with women who work in a mixed-gender workplace (44%).

The report also details information about the widely varying representation of women in STEM-related occupations. For example, in the 74 standard occupations classified as STEM in this study, women make up 7% of sales engineers, 8% of mechanical engineers, 95% of dental hygienists, and 96% of speech-language pathologists. The amount of women in computer occupations has actually decreased since 1990 – from 32% then to 25% today.

To view the report in full, please visit the Pew Research Center.

Charting a New Path to Success

Posted by on .

Associated image

The Guided Pathways Project, which is an endeavor implemented by the American Association of Community Colleges and is supported by a number of organizations around the country, is scheduled to begin at 30 campuses in the U.S. in time for the fall 2018 semester. The project is described as, “a fundamental reordering of how colleges have been doing business for a generation or more, involving substantial changes to a college’s programs, services, business processes, and policies.”

The Guided Pathways Project, which began in 2015, is hoped to be a conduit for increased training, materials, and models in helping students organize and figure out their end-goals with support from their college.

National Science Foundation Hosting the 2018 Community College Innovation Challenge

Posted by on .

For the fourth year in a row, the National Science Foundation and the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) are hosting the Community College Innovation Challenge (CCIC). The CCIC is a two-stage competition for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) community college students and faculty to create innovative solutions to real-world problems. Teams compete for cash awards and finalists earn full travel support, for both students and faculty, to attend an Innovation Boot Camp in Washington, D.C. This competition is a great way to create a deeper level of engagement and interaction between students and faculty mentors and an effective route to establishing productive relationships with the NSF and the AACC. Entry details are as follows:

  • Must include 3-5 students per team
  • Teams must have a faculty mentor (from your college)
  • Teams must have an industry partner (outside your college)
  • Entries must include a written portion and a 90-second video
  • Submit from Oct. 18, 2017, to Feb. 14, 2018, 11:59 p.m. EST
  • Must attend Innovation Boot Camp, required for student finalists and their faculty mentor, in Alexandria, Virginia, June 11, 2018, to June 14,...
