Thank you to members who responded to the January 2019 survey on Collegiate Leadership Engagement in the Society. SWE’s Senate sent out the survey which was used to determine and identify any barriers for collegiate leadership engagement at the Society level. Background information regarding this initiative can be found here. The collegiate survey received 263 responses, and the professional survey received 446 responses. Member feedback from the survey and historical data from SWE records provided insight in the following areas:
- Familiarity with Society Positions
- Time Commitment
- Financial Commitment
- Perception of Member Qualifications
- SWE Career Map and Mentorship
- Value of Society Leadership Positions
A collegiate engagement task force was chartered for FY20 by the Board of Directors. The findings from the FY19 Senate Strategic Initiatives Sub-team will be one of many resources utilized by that task force. Stay tuned for more updates.
