Foundation Coalition Mission
 
The Foundation Coalition (FC) mission, first on our own campuses and then nationally by leadership in dissemination, replication, and capacity building, is to (1) establish improved curricula and learning environments, (2) attract and retain a more demographically diverse student body, and (3) graduate engineers who possess those transforming attributes that fully reflect FC student outcomes.
  • Appreciation and motivation for lifelong learning;

  • Ability to participate in effective teams;
  • Oral, written, graphical, and visual communication skills;
  • Ability to appropriately apply the fundamentals of mathematics and the sciences;
  • Capability to integrate knowledge from different disciplines to define problems, develop and evaluate alternative solutions, and specify appropriate solutions;
  • Flexibility and competence in using modern technology effectively for analysis, design, and communication; and
  • Ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs.
  • The world in which our graduates will work is changing rapidly, and these student attributes are essential for our graduates to meet the demands placed on them.
