  • The ExxonMobil Gator Alumni STEPUP Fund » Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering » University of Florida
    STEPUP Fund The Successful Transition and Enhanced Preparation for Undergraduates Program STEPUP approaches the concept of student preparation from a holistic perspective It consists of two major components Residential Conducted during the summer of their freshman year the residential component addresses the majority of potential issues and challenges that can negatively impact first year minority students The rigorous six week 14 hour per day program involves supplemental instruction in chemistry and calculus personal and professional development and a course in problem solving and design requiring use of AutoCAD and MATLAB Participants live together work together and share meals together Non Residential Conducted during the student s first fall and spring terms the non residential component involves strong peer faculty and professional mentoring Students are required to attend study hall sessions and Student Success Workshops on topics ranging from time management and resume development to test taking skills Group meetings with their mentors are regularly scheduled Students also participate in the campus career fair to identify summer internship opportunities after their first year Participating in STEPUP allowed me to have opportunities that not many incoming freshman students would have I networked with upperclassmen engineers who guided me in the right direction and interacted with renowned faculty that many freshman would not have the opportunity to meet until their later years STEPUP is a family that motivates you and wants you to succeed in everything Kimberly Gant Industrial Systems STEPUP Student Why diversity in engineering Key challenges in engineering involve retention of engineering students The average national retention of students who begin their major as engineers is 60 with females and minorities experiencing an even lower retention rate The U S is rapidly approaching a population shift in which today s minority will become the majority by 2042 STEPUP is specifically addressing the concerns that have arisen within the engineering industry over the lack of diversity in its workforce STEPUP is nearing completion of its 21st year of existence 20th year with a residential component It serves as a direct response to the call for increased diversity among engineering disciplines How does STEPUP promote success The high attrition rate of engineering students in the first two years of college can be linked to their large critical tracking courses including chemistry physics and calculus However introducing engineering early in the curriculum provides STEPUP students with an instant support community They are able to adopt an identity of engineer early on creating a positive impact and leading to lower attrition in these sensitive years The program offered me the experience to go on manufacturing plant tours where I had the opportunity to meet professional engineers who were more than willing to provide helpful insight gain awareness of what an engineering student needs to be successful and most importantly gained self management skills That being said without the program I don t think I d be where I am today Jairo Gonzalez Industrial Systems STEPUP Student What do the results show UF students participating in
