Title: Cross-College Collaboration Model for Mechanical Engineering Retention
Lead Presenter: Jennifer Lachendro
Date: October 07, 2020    Time: 11:00 am - 11:45 am
Room: Poster
Abstract: Research indicates nearly half of the students who begin their college careers in a STEM program change their focus before completing their first year. Studies prove that career counseling has positive results in recruiting and retaining students through degree completion and matriculation into a STEM vocation. In an effort for our students to benefit from these findings, a partnership between Penn State's Mechanical Engineering Department and the Counseling Education program was formed. This presentation will review research findings on career counseling on STEM retention and examine how the partnership between two very different programs have benefited both undergraduate and graduate students at our school.
