EDEFI m h (3).png

The EDEFI  team was co-founded by Dr. Ebony O. McGee and Dr. William H. Robinson. (EDEFI) (pronounced “edify”) investigates the institutional, technical, social, and cultural factors that affect decision-making, career choices, and career satisfaction for engineering and computing doctoral students, candidates, postdoctoral researchers, and faculty who have been marginalized by race and/or gender. EDEFI also looks at ways those factors contribute to the current underrepresentation of these marginalized groups in engineering and computing faculty positions. We pay special attention to increasing the numbers of Black faculty in these positions. They are supported in their work by faculty, postdoctoral researchers, graduate students, undergraduate students, and research affiliates
