Abstract

Engineering education is facing difficult times attracting women, African-Americans, and Hispanics in academia in the United States. The problem worsens in graduate education as the statistics for women and minority faculty at engineering graduate schools across the country are depressingly low. As the quest for knowledge increases we must provide PhD students with new tools and resources to compete and succeed in the global economy. In 2002, a unique partnership between Syracuse University, Cornell University, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and the University of Puerto Rico-Mayaguez was established under the name of "The Alliance for Graduate Education and The Professorate: Central New York-Puerto Rico" (AGEP: CNY-PR). The alliance has been successful in increasing the number of minorities and female obtaining PhD degrees in Science, Mathematics and Engineering while promoting research and education collaboration among the allied institutions.
