Equity-Minded Action: Promoting A Culture of Excellence in Strategies and Outcomes for Black Engineering Students
The College of Engineering is excited to welcome Dr. Brandi P. Jones to our DEI lecture series for the month of December. Her lecture will be focused on creating a culture of institutional accountability for the success of Black engineering students. She will discuss ways to put equity at the core of efforts to broaden participation in engineering.
Dr. Jones is responsible for leading and directing equity, diversity, and inclusion initiatives for Viterbi School of Engineering at the University of Southern California. She brings 20+ years of experience and proven track record of success in higher education administration, diversity, outreach, and student development.
Dr. Jones’ professional experience is enhanced by her Doctorate in Higher Education Management from the University of Pennsylvania, combined with her research focus on the experiences of underrepresented minority students in engineering disciplines.
