EETI is pleased to congratulate Drs. Cheryl Gomillion and Nicola Sochacka on their recent NSF grant, entitled “An Investigator Development Plan for Building Capacity to Explore Diverse Microcultures in Graduate Engineering Research Laboratories.” The goal of this project is to build the educational research expertise required to study diverse microcultures in graduate research settings. Such research will enable Dr. Gomillion to identify what factors facilitate success for students thriving in these environments so those lessons can be applied to creating a sustainable graduate education model for diverse students.
This grant grew from a collaboration and support from within EETI. Dr. Gomillion was a recipient of an EETI research initiation grant and participated in the EETIncubator.
