Introduction

In 2016, Stanford’s Office of the Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning (VPTL) funded a Faculty College to develop and expand a new course titled “Expanding Engineering Limits: Culture, Diversity, and Gender” (EEL) (cross-listed as ENGR311c/FEMGEN311c). A Faculty College brings small faculty teams together over the course of the academic year to plan, study, and develop innovative curricular and pedagogical ideas. It provides these faculty teams with the space, time, and resources to work collaboratively on projects.

The goals of this Faculty College are to provide more students with knowledge of diversity and culture, engage more faculty in designing related learning opportunities, and explore how to put such knowledge to use in teaching and research for more inclusive educational experiences and better scholarship. This Faculty College will accomplish these goals by creating a collaborative network of faculty in engineering, humanities, and social science fields who will regularly come together to engage in course (re)design and discuss implications of course content for broader change in STEM.

Rationale

Engineers design solutions with and for people – people who come from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds, with many different and intersectional identities based on gender, ethnicity, socioeconomic background, religion, sexual orientation, and more. However, without learning experiences focused on dimensions of human diversity, engineers are more likely to fall back on stereotypes and personal frames of reference that can limit the scope and quality of their work.

This Faculty College will engage a cross-disciplinary team of faculty members and educators to build upon the experience of a Fall 2015 pilot course that brought research on culture, diversity and gender to the engineering curriculum in a focused, intentional manner. Through collaborative learning and planning, this College seeks to provide more students with knowledge of diversity and culture, engage more faculty in designing related learning opportunities, and explore how to put such knowledge to use in teaching and research for more inclusive classrooms and better scholarship.

There are currently few opportunities for Stanford engineering students to learn about cultural diversity in the context of engineering. This Faculty College responds to the needs of the School of Engineering identified through strategic planning, and builds upon Stanford’s missions in excellence, diversity, and interdisciplinary scholarship.
