Grant Summary

$25,000 over 5 months to support a planning grant to four campuses in the California State University (CSU) system as they  partner to develop vertical integration of the liberal arts into the professional preparation of undergraduate engineering students from the first to the final year. As part of the planning process, the campus partners will investigate the feasibility of several strategies to embed the liberal arts in engineering curricula in a manner that avoids adding credits to already credit-intensive engineering majors while satisfying accreditation and other requirements.
