PIPELINES selected as 2019 Program to Watch by Excelencia in Education
CNSI's Problem-based Initiatives for Powerful Engagement and Learning In Naval Engineering and Science (PIPELINES) program has been selected as a 2019 Program to Watch by Excelencia in Education. Excelencia in Education, founded in 2004, accelerates Latino student success in higher education to address the U.S. economy’s need for a highly educated workforce and for civic leadership. Led by Dr. Mariateresa Napoli, PIPELINES is a collaboration between UCSB and the Naval Facilities command at Port Hueneme. Through the program, teams of undergraduates work on finding solutions to real-world Naval engineering and science design projects.
PIPELINES was among 20 national programs (out of 166 candidates) to be named, in recognition of promising evidence-based practices that "serve Latino students in unique and impactful ways."
