atmosphere of mutual respect, cooperation, and sharing will pervade
the campus cultures and all interactions of the Foundation Coalition.
We are envisioning a new culture of engineering education: students,
faculty, and employers working in partnership to produce an enduring
foundation for student development and life-long learning.
This cooperative partnership places new demands on all of the principals:
students take a more active role in their education; employers become
more fully engaged in characterizing the skills and attributes required
of the 21st century engineer; faculty redefine their relationship
to the students and to each other across disciplines, and more directly
address the building of student skills and attributes.
Since the integration of subject matter within the curriculum emphasizes
that effective learning communities must span disciplinary and departmental
boundaries, we believe this is a core competency related to partnering.
We also believe that the ability to work and collaborate in a true
team environment is necessary to establishing working partnerships:
among faculty, students, industry, and institutions.
