SEECer's Symposium about Housing Insecurity
When: Saturday April 20th, 10:00 am – 2:00 pm
Where: Student Center Grand Ballrooms
We are the SEECers – Sustainable Engineering Education Coalition – and we work throughout Mines to represent the Humanitarian Engineering program. This semester, we are running a symposium to encourage students and professionals to incorporate the human-centered design approach into their engineering projects and explore the socio-technical nature of real-world problems. Through the topic of housing insecurity, we will explore how engineers and professionals of other disciplines can collaborate with communities to have a wide and positive impact on this aspect of society. This symposium will take place on April 20th, 2019 Colorado School of Mines in Golden, CO. It will incorporate guest speakers well-versed in homelessness as well as round-table discussions with local organizations to continue the conversation about social responsibility. Registration for the conference begins at 9 am, and the speakers will begin at 10 am. The conference includes lunch. Follow along here for updates!
