The PROMISE Engineering Institute will leverage the prior investments of NSF in its Engineering Directorate and Education and Human Resources Directorate programs, and relationships with the University System of Maryland’s provosts and STEM deans to stimulate an increase in engineering faculty diversity by focusing on four distinct areas of action:


Project 1 (P1): Institute-wide Database and Portal for Faculty Diversity

Project 2 (P2): Pre-Faculty Preparation Training & Exposure

Project 3 (P3): Placement Initiative

Project 4 (P4): Transitional Support for New Assistant Professors
