Racism-20: Disruption in engineering education’s culture

Brooke Coley is an assistant professor in engineering at the Polytechnic School of the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University, where she also pursued postdoctoral training. Coley previously served as the associate director for the Center for Diversity in Engineering at the University of Virginia and as an American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Science and Technology Policy Fellow, where she worked at the National Science Foundation (NSF). Coley is a bioengineer and social justice scholar, pushing the bounds of traditionally heteronormative engineering environments through transdisciplinary approaches. Intrigued by the intersections of engineering education, mental health, and social justice, Coley’s primary research focuses on virtual reality as a tool for developing empathetic and inclusive mindsets. She co-leads two NSF-funded studies addressing diversity in university-affiliated makerspaces and the impact on the identity formation of underrepresented undergraduate engineering students. Coley holds a Ph.D. in bioengineering from the University of Pittsburgh and a B.S. in chemical engineering from the University of Maryland.
