Race, Rigor, and Selectivity in U.S. Engineering is an important contribution to understanding the historical institutional and individual challenges in attracting, retaining, and advancing underrepresented minority students in engineering disciplines. Most significantly, [Slaton] recognizes that many of the thorniest challenges are with the institutions that students would enter and not with the students themselves. Slaton offers common sense observations and practical suggestions for how the engineering community through diversification might add vitality to the profession, and better serve its creed of working for 'the advancement and betterment of human welfare.'--Dr. Norman L. Fortenberry, Director, Center for the Advancement of Scholarship on Engineering Education, National Academy of Engineering
In compelling fashion, Amy Slaton reframes the entire debate about public policy related to diversity and under-represented groups in science and engineering programs.--Bruce Seely, Department Chair and Professor of History, Michigan Technological University
