Help HERL Support Veterans!
Help the Human Engineering Research Laboratories raise $10,000 to support two Veterans for the summer 2016 session of the Experiential Learning for Veterans in Assistive Technology and Engineering (ELeVATE) program, a holistic transition program that supports Veterans interested in STEM careers and educates faculty and staff on how to prepare Veterans for success.
HERL has partnered with EngagePitt to help raise these funds. Your contribution will help cover the living stipends for two veterans during the 10-week on-campus portion of the ELeVATE program.
ELeVATE participants engage in experiential learning, rehabilitation counseling, mentoring, academic preparation and career exposure activities. The components are designed to increase self-efficacy and outcome expectations which help participants achieve their performance goals as they enroll in and complete engineering and technology degree programs, and pursue a graduate degree or employment in engineering and technology.
