As part of ASEE’s ongoing activities in support of a diverse and inclusive environment for all members, this is a working session for a special interest group (SIG) focusing on issues relevant to the community of first-generation and low socioeconomic status students. The purpose is to facilitate open dialogue and conversation, allowing participants to discuss how ASEE can support engineering education, relevant diversity research, and engagement of this community in society activities. A team of facilitators will help guide the discussion, and the output of the session will be a set of recommendations for consideration by ASEE's leadership for consideration and integration into the activities of the society.
