The "Gateway"Engineering Education Coalition is a collaborative program of 10 institutions, supported by the Engineering Directorate of the National Science Foundation. The Principal Investigator is Dr. Eli Fromm, Vice President for Educational Research and Technology, Drexel University. Headquartered at Drexel University and representing a diversity of institutional cultures imbedded in regions of significantly underrepresented minority populations, the Coalition expects to open new "gateways" for learning by altering engineering education from a focus on course content to a focus on the development of human resources and the broader experience in which individual curriculum parts are connected and integrated.

This project is funded by National Science Foundation (Engineering Education and Centers Division, Award No. EEC 9109794 & EEC 9727413) through the Gateway Coalition. To learn more about Gateway, visit its home at Drexel University.
