Live webinar presented on: Thursday, November 1 2012 (55 minutes)
Learn about one community college program in engineering technology in which the percentage of females retained went from zero percent in 2007 to 26% in 2012. Plus, more male students and minority students are receiving degrees and certificates as well!

- What female students need to hear from faculty to keep them on track to graduate.
- The curriculum changes that will keep students engaged throughout the program.
