Carol Stwalley, Ph.D.

Recruitment and Retention Analyst, Minority Engineering Program

Carol Stwalley, Ph.D. PE, joined the MEP team in the fall of 2007. Carol’s work includes developing a comprehensive database to evaluate MEP signature programs, as well as establishing trend lines in outreach, recruitment, enrollment, retention, and graduation rates for underrepresented students compared to the overall College of Engineering cohort. After several years of service in these areas, she began working half-time for MEP and half-time for the Office of Diversity and Inclusion in the summer of 2012 under the leadership of Dr. Christine Taylor. During the summer of 2014, her work was expanded to include the Office of Institutional Assessment.

Her latest work, a MEP team effort, was a five-year study of the Academic Boot Camps for Engineering, Science, and Technology. This research culminated in the paper, “A Description of the Statistics Behind Analyzing Performance Data:  A Five-Year Study of a Summer Bridge Program for Incoming Underrepresented Minority Freshman,” for the American Society of Engineering Education’s (ASEE) summer 2015 conference.

With a B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in Agriculture and Biological Engineering from Purdue University, and her experience with the Women in Engineering Program at Purdue, Carol has the proper tools to navigate and contextualize dense data related to historically underrepresented groups for the various colleges at Purdue University.
