STEM Everyday #67: Dr. Christine Cunningham, EIE Founder and Director


Christine’s work focuses on one key question: How can the teaching of engineering and science change so that it benefits and includes diverse populations?  Before launching EiE in 2003, she was director of engineering education research at Tufts University; she also directed the first national longitudinal study of the factors that help women persist in college engineering majors.  Her work has been honored with numerous awards, including an Outstanding Leadership Award from the American Society for Engineering Education.  Christine holds joint bachelor’s and master’s degrees in biology from Yale University and a Ph.D. in science education from Cornell University.
