The ERC/SNE develops new K-12 curricula to create a diverse pool of neuroscience- and neural-engineering-literate students who can enrich national university and industry talent pools. The Center will expand and diversify the pipeline of underrepresented groups prepared for college and advanced degree completion in neural engineering disciplines: 1) by expanding partnerships with minority-serving institutions on K-12 project-based experiences (such as those provided by MESA programs), 2) by working with programs that serve students with disabilities nationwide (such as the DO-IT program), and 3) through a Research Experience for Undergraduate program and active recruitment of underrepresented groups that include women, minorities, and individuals with disabilities.
The ERC/SNE curricula and educational programs at all partnering institutions will extend the impact of new discoveries to a broader audience. These programs include Graduate Certificate Programs and policies that make it possible to double major across colleges within an institution. The Center also provides faculty and student exchange programs across all partner institutions, with a special emphasis on building long-lasting and deep relationships with institutions that predominantly serve underrepresented minorities. Through international collaborations, the Center promotes a global view of science and technology concerns to student and faculty participants.
