Team Membership

  • David Wormley, Sponsor
  • Al Soyster, Leader
  • Bob Barlock, Facilitator

Results Achieved to Date

  • Recommendations:

    Develop Management Infrastructure to handle on-site visits by students/parents

    Female admits to the COE are contacted by Envoyos, Faculty, Staff, Students

    Suppport Outreach Activities such as: Spend a Summer Day; Extend Receptions for Accepted Students

    Promote bi-weekly updates of recruiting statistics for the College of Engineering (every two weeks the Executive Committee is apprised of recruiting status)

    Use the WWW and Develop Home Page and Bulletin Board for High-Tech Recruiting

    A Special Study should be undertaken to explain why the enrollment at the campuses (10.8% for years 1984-1993) show such a disproportionate low number of women as compared to the 19.8% women enrolled in engineering at University Park for the same 10 year period.
