Engineering Faculty Impact Collaborative (EFIC)

Engineering Faculty Impact Collaborative (EFIC)

The goal of EFIC is to build a community of practice among institutions and faculty that values impactful research, quality teaching, a collaborative mindset, and personal development for a meaningful life. Engineering faculty are the focus of EFIC since they have direct and immediate influence on the next generation of students. Aligned with EM, EFIC aims to contribute to the knowledge base on effective mentorship, connect to build and share professional development opportunities, and instigate action to advance faculty mentorship throughout a faculty’s career.

Think Tank Convenings

Think Tank I brought together key stakeholders to share results from customer discovery with deans across the country focused on identifying attributes that differentiate institutions, and inventory existing faculty development/mentorship models within KEEN and engineering societies. Think Tank II provided input and direction on how EFIC will function to advance the interests of the community and enable broad impact, establish partnerships on specific areas of investigation, and develop plans to implement studies/activities starting in 2019.
