CSEP Open House
The Center for Science and Engineering Partnerships (CSEP) invites you to celebrate the culmination of our first year's programming with a new speaker series focusing on issues of education and professional development for emerging scientists and engineers. CSEP will also be holding an Open House Reception during this time for faculty and students interested in learning more about opportunities to get involved with current programming, program development, and evaluation services offered.
CSEP specializes in collaborative programs that bring together students at all levels, educators, and researchers to develop activities which motivate, recruit and retain students in science and engineering fields. These programs also create new social networks and include mentorship as a particularly powerful resource to engage more students from disadvantaged and/or under-represented backgrounds.
