Advancing Technology that Promotes Social Justice for Humanity...
Students, staff, faculty and visitors have formed a community focused on how to use engineering principles to develop technologies that promote social justice. We consider racism, poverty, mental health and wellness challenges. We work together as an open, welcoming, diverse and inclusive community, and we collaborate across the university.
The purpose of this Buckeye Funder campaign is to gain support for education, service and research, all for using engineering design methodology to create technology for social justice. Please consider donating in the categories identified, to a specific thrust, or making a general donation to our efforts.
A summary of our efforts is provided below, but they are described in more detail here.
- A freshman-level course first offered in Autumn 2020.
- A course open to all undergraduate and graduate students in engineering proposed to be offered in Autumn 2021.
- Design Competition Autumn Semester 2020.
Humanitarian Engineering (Antipoverty Technology):
- A freshman-level course entitled Antipoverty Technology offered Autumn 2020.
- A course on Humanitarian Engineering for all undergraduate and graduate students in engineering has been offered annually since 2014, along with other courses and field work all over the world.
- A textbook on the subject.
Technology for Mental Health:
- Focus is primarily on stress and depression.
