To retain students in Engineering, ENGAGE students in Engineering.

Retain undergraduates, particularly underrepresented groups, by improving their day-to-day classroom and educational experiences. 

ENGAGE's free, research-based resources can help you do this.

ENGAGE provides resources for three strategies that are:

  • Scale-able
  • Relatively low on investment of time and money.
  • Substantiated by a rigorous body of research that supports the benefit of their use for increasing student engagement and retention.
Connect students to Everyday Examples in Engineering (E³s), engineering concepts to which students can readily relate. Click here to learn about the research behind why E³s work to retain students.
