Dear Engineering Student,   

My name is Bo Hyun Lee, Ph.D., and I am an assistant professor in Counseling & Educational Psychology at the New Mexico State University. The purpose of this study is to learn more about the contextual and socio-cognitive factors that influence the academic and career development among the historically underrepresented college students pursuing a degree in engineering. This information will contribute to better understanding the process in which students decide to pursue an engineering degree, as well as the variables that impact persistence in both engineering education and careers. Participation involves completing a confidential online survey (approximately 15-20 minutes to complete) at your convenience. Participation in this study is completely voluntary, and this research has been approved by the Institutional Review Board for Human Subjects in Research at New Mexico State University (NMSU IRB # 22261).   To participate in this study, you need to be 18 years of age or older, and identify as African American/Black, Hispanic American/Latinx, Native American, and Bi/Multi-Racial American. You also need to be a declared major within engineering fields as of Fall Semester 2020. Individuals who consider majoring in Engineering, but did not declare engineering as a major are not eligible for this study.   If you are interested in participating in this study, please click on the link below, fill out the informed consent form, and complete the study.
