Community & K-12 Outreach


The Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering understands the value of Community Service and recognizes our involvement in STEM education as a necessary presence by offering numerous programs that focus on empowering and engaging young minds with a proclivity towards the STEM fields.  We have been supporting various initiatives such as the Attracting Women into Engineering (AWE) Program for over 20 years as well as more recent activites such as RISE, BEST, BlastOff, SeaPerch, MathCounts, FIRST Lego, and EduAdventures.  The  College is privileged to have had successful collaborations with regional communities and we look forward to further developing these relationships along with cultivating new partnerships.  The realized impact is mutual, our engineering students become better stewards of society and future STEM students get to explore the exciting and dynamic world of engineering.
