Abstract

In the fall of 2003, a National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering (NACME) Program was begun in the Ira A. Fulton School of Engineering at Arizona State University (ASU). The funding for this program was part of 13 five-year block grants given to colleges and universities by NACME that fall. This paper looks at the over all ASU NACME program: its successes, areas in which improvement is desired, and the best practices that have developed during the three years. The purpose of the NACME program is to graduate underrepresented students and to encourage them to go on to graduate school. The paper includes the summary of the semester evaluations submitted by the students and a summary of the retention of the students.
