Community Engagement Division

Community Engagement Division

Call for Papers: 2022 Annual Conference

The ASEE Community Engagement Division (CED) is soliciting abstracts and papers for the June 2022 ASEE Annual Conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Abstract submissions open October 11th and close November 8th, 2021. Submitted abstracts and papers can take many forms: theoretical to practical, conceptual to experiential, all with emphasis given to evidence-based papers and presentations. 

Community Engagement is an umbrella term for community-based research, humanitarian engineering, service learning, civically-engaged learners, technology-based social entrepreneurship and more. Community organizations (either local or from abroad) partner with institutions of engineering education for the mutual benefit of communities and engineering students. Ideally, student teams and citizens work together on the shared purpose of completing community-identified projects aimed at increasing community assets. The CED is a scholarly community for faculty interested in the various ways engineering students, faculty, institutions, communities, and other stakeholders are impacted through the many different types of CE efforts.

The division is particularly interested in papers that fall into one of two distinct categories: (1) Traditional Research Papers and (2) Engagement in Practice (Work-In-Progress) Papers.

The Traditional Research Papers are full papers that address scholarly research on the impacts of community engagement on students, community partners, and/or faculty. Abstracts for this category will be accepted on, but are not limited to, research on the following topics:

• Educational research in the context of engineering education and community engagement. 
• Models of community engagement activities in engineering including design projects and collaborations with co- and extra-curricular activities; 
• Scaling community engagement to large numbers and/or high percentages of engineering students; 
• Innovative approaches to integrating community-based efforts into the engineering curriculum; 
• Building effective community partnerships at both the local and global scale; 
• Establishing program sustainability – making programs outlive their founders; 
• Lessons learned in implementing community-based educational initiatives; 
• Integration of community engagement in a K-12 STEM Setting 
• Perspectives of community partners

The Engagement in Practice Papers are shorter papers (6 pages or less). The structure of the session at the conference will include short presentations (3-5 minutes) with facilitated discussion and sharing. Papers in this category will detail specific community engagement projects (case studies) or efforts that currently do not have a significant collection of data for educational evaluation or assessment. These papers should address key issues such as partnership development, project design, project execution, successes and lessons learned, transferability, etc. Papers in this category will be limited to a length of 6 pages or less including references, yet all other paper requirements for an ASEE conference paper will be maintained. Engagement in Practice papers that are accepted will be grouped into a single session devoted specifically to presenting ongoing community engagement projects/efforts. Papers in this category must have Engagement in Practice as the first part of the title of their paper, ex: Engagement in Practice: Lessons Learned from University X’s Engineering Service Learning Program. 

Abstracts submitted no later than the closing date announced by ASEE will be evaluated and ranked. Papers selected for presentation must be submitted in accordance with ASEE requirements found on the ASEE website.

Please submit a 200-300 word abstract electronically through the ASEE Conferences website. 

Abstracts for Traditional Research Papers should address the following: 
• Background and motivation 
• Description and justification of methodology 
• Results and data analysis including impact on the community where possible 
• Conclusions and significance

Abstracts for Engagement in Practice papers should include the following 
• Background (including partnership development) and motivation for project 
• Project design and execution 
• Lessons learned through successes or failures 
• Conclusions and next steps

Abstracts and papers are double-blind reviewed. It is the author’s responsibility to ensure that the requirements for double-blind review are met. The abstract and subsequent drafts should NOT include authors’ names or institutional affiliations nor should author names be in the file name or in document properties. It is not necessary to include references in the abstract. In addition, the submitter must be sure to indicate that your abstract is for the Community Engagement Division.

ASEE’s paper submission process and timeline are explicit, and the program chair CANNOT override them.

To create a division rooted in effective learning and engagement, sessions and presentations will be structured to maximize the benefits for speakers and attendees alike. Based on submitted papers, the program chair will craft the best session topics and formats possible.

Since our goal is to create a diverse division program, we are exploring the use of special sessions that optimize audience interactions or bring in invited speakers, as well as sessions that allow hands-on experiences between conference attendees and the local community. This would include proposals for Sunday workshops at the conference on community engagement and/or off-site events. We are open to suggestions and look forward to your input on what and how such special sessions can be added to the program. 

If you have any questions about possible paper or special session ideas please contact the program chair:

Engineering Ethics Division

Engineering Ethics Division 2022 ASEE Annual Conference Call for Papers (CFP)

The Engineering Ethics Division invites abstracts for papers for the 2022 ASEE Annual Conference to be held in Minneapolis, Minnesota this upcoming June 26-29, 2022. We welcome papers and presentations that attend to topics within the broad conceptualization of engineering ethics including focus in theory, research, teaching, and professional development. We invite authors with diverse perspectives and approaches including students, researchers, faculty, administrators, institutional leaders, and industry practitioners. 

Topics of Special Interest for 2022 
In addition to seeking submissions that focus on the traditional topics represented in engineering ethics (e.g., ethics education and research initiatives), for the 2022 conference we are encouraging submissions that highlight an expanded scope of what engineering ethics includes. Of particular interest are the following topics: 
● Engineering ethics considerations in emerging technologies (e.g., AI, big data) 
● Examinations of ethical engineering in industry and applied contexts 
● Student experiences in ethical engineering identity formation and development 
● Philosophical contributions to engineering ethics 
● Extensions of research methods applied to engineering ethics related questions, and 
● Ethics in engineering as related to environmental and sustainability concerns 
● Year of Impact - furthermore, while we customarily encourage engineering ethics submissions that highlight diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice, this year we would like to support the ASEE’s Commission for Diversity Equity and Inclusion’s focus on the Year of Impact on Racial Equity. Therefore, the Engineering Ethics Division also invites submissions that highlight a “move beyond action to focus on the impacts of the actions we take” both in DEI ethics specific areas and in other engineering ethics considerations.  

Submission Types 
There are three types of submissions: Papers, Special Sessions, and Distinguished Lectures. 

Traditional Papers: 
We accept the following types of traditional paper presentation submissions, please specify which type you are submitting. 
● Research Papers: Complete or near complete research studies that are situated within a body of previous scholarship and utilized accepted research methodology. Results, conclusions, and future research will be presented. 
● Theory Papers: A review paper or theory-focused paper; must include a review of relevant prior work in engineering ethics research or education and present important insights or theory for future evaluation or translation into practice. 
● Evidence-Based Practice Papers: Instruction-focused papers about an educational project and its implications for engineering educators; must include presentation of pedagogical and/or ethical frameworks and relationship to prior work in ethics education. Relevant literature citations, methodology, and assessment results must be presented. 
● Work in Progress (WIP) Papers: for research studies at an intermediate stage for which authors are seeking to present early findings and receive feedback from the community. Please indicate if you are submitting a WIP. 
● Posters are best for early-stage projects or conceptual proposals that would benefit from more direct discussion and feedback from the ASEE audience and can include work-in-progress research presentations or educational interventions that have not yet developed into research. Please indicate if you are submitting for poster presentation only. 

Additional Submission Options: 
● Special Sessions can be interactive presentations, panels, or workshops on an ethics-related topic of interest to engineering/engineering technology and teaching professionals. Special sessions can be a group of four or five related papers on a topic of significance or a panel of several invited speakers*. 
● Workshops are an alternative option and are normally presented on the Sunday immediately preceding the conference. Workshop presenters are required to cover the cost of the workshop and are therefore encouraged to supplement workshop fees with appropriate extramural grants and subsidies. (Please note that even after accepting a proposal, the program chair may cancel any workshop that becomes likely to incur a financial loss to the division)*. 
● Distinguished Speaker sessions or distinguished panel sessions also are very welcome each year for the Ethics Division. These sessions have a separate timeline for proposals and acceptance. Please see the ASEE website for details*. 

*Please contact the division’s Program Chair to discuss special session proposals, pre-conference workshops, and/or Ethics Division Sponsorship (sole or joint) on distinguished speaker sessions before submitting your proposal to ASEE. 

Papers submissions will be considered for a division Best Paper Award and a Best Diversity Paper award. The winning papers will be submitted as the divisions’ nominations for the greater ASEE paper awards in the respective contests. Reviewers will nominate papers for this award during the review process. Please review the best paper rubrics if these awards are of specific interest to you. 

All Submissions 
Initial submission abstracts should be approximately 300-500 words in length and include the following information: the type of paper, a clear statement of objective, the relevance of the work to ethics, analysis and/or assessment methods, results or findings, and next steps. Please provide a brief indication of the type of submission in brackets in the title (e.g., [Full Research Paper, Ethics of Emerging Technology]). Abstracts must be submitted electronically through the ASEE paper submission system by the deadline of November 8, 2021. 

If you have any questions, please contact Program Chair Ali Kerr ( or Division Chair Qin Zhu (

Engineering Leadership Development Division

The Engineering Leadership Development Division (LEAD) of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) seeks paper abstracts for the 2022 Annual Conference in Minneapolis, MN, June 26-29th, 2022. The LEAD division is committed to advancing our shared understanding of engineering leadership theory and practice to enhance the contributions of engineering students and professionals to their respective institutions, industries, and society. Integral to these objectives is our commitment to fostering the development of inclusive, diverse, and equitable engineering leaders, educators, and researchers. 
All paper submissions are publish-to-present. Papers submitted to technical sessions are peer-reviewed through the LEAD Division, and those accepted will appear in the ASEE Conference Proceedings. The first step in proposing a paper is to submit an abstract to the ASEE paper management system by Monday, November 8th, 2021. Abstracts should be 250-500 words and will be peer reviewed. If your abstract is accepted, the first draft paper deadline is Monday, February 7th, 2022. Paper submissions may include research studies, practice reports, or Works in Progress. We encourage papers that synthesize and identify trends in research of interest to the division, especially those aligned with the division’s four strategic initiatives:

Topic Area—The following topic areas align with our division’s four strategic initiatives: 
1. Inform: Document the need for and value of engineering leadership (EL) education in university and workplace contexts. 
2. Design: Demonstrate evidence-based practices for designing, implementing, and sustaining EL programs. 
3. Explore: Examine leadership theory and/or practice in engineering education or workplace settings. 
4. Assess: Evaluate the impact of curricular interventions, EL development models, or EL programs on engineering students and professionals.

The LEAD division accepts abstracts for the following two submission types: 

1. Research papers present new findings, situated in the context of prior research and existing models to reveal relationships, patterns, or insights relevant to engineering leadership. Papers should include an introductory problem statement, review of relevant literature, description of the research methodology, results, and implications of the work in furthering the LEAD division’s strategic priorities. We encourage authors to consider aspects of diversity, equity and inclusion in their research design and reporting of results. Research papers may take the form of literature reviews, meta-analyses, empirical studies, or theory development. As the field of leadership studies is broad, we strongly encourage authors to cite research from fields outside of engineering, including but not limited to psychology, sociology, business, education, and the humanities.

2. Practice papers highlight and analyze innovative engineering leadership education practices in industry or classroom contexts. These papers are not required to include an exhaustive literature review, but authors are encouraged to cite relevant literature, theories, or frameworks that inform the highlighted practice. Authors should include some measure of effectiveness and identify implications for EL education and/or training in other contexts. Practice papers may take the form of case studies, curricular innovation, EL assessment tool development, or program evaluation. We encourage authors to consider aspects of diversity, equity and inclusion in their program design and reporting of results.

Both research and practice papers can be submitted as Work-in-Progress (WIP) papers. WIP papers are 3-5 page extended abstracts reporting on projects that are not yet fully developed and/or are only supported by preliminary data. For example, papers describing innovative practices without formal evaluation of effectiveness are acceptable as WIPs. 

Full papers published in the ASEE conference proceedings are typically 10-15 pages long, while WIP papers are typically 3-5 pages long. Out of respect for our reviewers, please keep to these page limits. We encourage all authors to volunteer as reviewers. 

Abstracts will be peer-reviewed by members of the LEAD community. They should be 250-500 words in length and include: 
• Submission type (research, practice, WIP-research, or WIP-practice) 
• LEAD Division strategic priority (inform, design explore, assess) 
• Guiding question, problem statement, or key project objectives 
• Project context 
• Theoretical perspective, conceptual framework, or instructional approach being used 
• Research methods, evaluation, or assessment practices 
• Preliminary findings 
• Implications for engineering leadership research and/or practice, and 
• Significance to LEAD division members

Depending on the number of papers submitted, some papers, such as WIPs, may be moved to a poster-presentation format.

Liberal Education/Engineering & Society Division

Liberal Education/Engineering & Society (LEES) Division Call for Papers 
The Liberal Education/Engineering & Society (LEES) Division invites abstracts for papers and poster proposals for full sessions, panel discussions, workshops, and non-traditional session formats for the ASEE Annual Conference, June 26 – 29, 2022 in Minneapolis, MN. LEES is concerned with the role of the humanities, arts, social sciences, and communication in engineering education. LEES welcomes proposals related to any of the diverse areas falling within the scope of our division. LEES members come from a diversity of experiences making a full accounting of our efforts impossible. As partial descriptors: we critically analyze the social and ethical dimensions of expertise and technoscience, build and maintain higher education programs, care for members of our communities, teach research and communication skills, act as experts outside of universities, study engineering communities, and situate engineering within larger social, historical, political, and cultural contexts. The following sections include ideas gathered from several of our members that we hope guide your consideration for the upcoming 2022 Annual Conference. Many thanks for those who have shared their insights and our communities ongoing care for our division. 
Additional information will be shared to the listserv for current members and the LEES website as the year progresses. 
Topics of Interest 
Inequity, Culture, and Hegemonic Replication. What is the role of LEES members in critical interventions in a post-truth world and counter hegemonic sociotechnical institutions? How do we empower peoples of color, disabled people, LGBTQ communities, immigrants and children of immigrants beyond inadequate diversity and inclusion initiatives? We must name and then disturb the processes and people who implicitly or explicitly recreate minoritization, oppression, and exclusion. The scale of intervention can range from personal relationships to global scale, for example how can the emerging field of peace engineering better engage with the scholarship and current debates in STS, humanitarian engineering, and peacebuilding? 
Praxis and empowerment. The first topic implies we can support justice and equity but we need to develop critical tools, new forms of engagement, and practice transforming ourselves. Explorations of practicing and theorizing for community organizing, reflection, dialogue, and conscientization (cf. Paolo Freire) that can help change higher educations’ structures (cf. Michael Apple) and help transform ourselves (cf. Henry Giroux) are encouraged. Please consider a variety of formats beyond papers: workshops, activities, local partnerships, and virtual engagements. Please consider incorporating standpoints from staff, students, faculty, administrators, comrades, and other kinships you live within (cf. Donna Haraway). 
Deconstructing boundaries between technical and [everything else]. We obviously are not alone in rethinking what engineering if for and the artificial distinctions between social/technical, how do we help inform these discussions at different scales? Please consider building collaborations across ASEE divisions that might support our scholarship and capacity building. Several LEES members noted strong overlaps with, among others: Technological and Engineering Literacy/Philosophy of Engineering, Ethics, and Equity, Culture & Social Justice in Education Divisions. 
Important information 
The first step is submission of abstracts for papers, workshops, panels and special session requests by Oct 11th, 2021. 
We have a wealth of incredible work developed by our own members across a spectrum of platforms, some of which can be accessed through conference proceedings and the LEES website. The officers of LEES will be working to build out a more robust communication and information sharing plan this year. In the interim, we can enable stronger support for one another while avoiding reproduction of fractured scholarship or exclusionary factions through critical reflection of existing projects and scholarship. Second, alternatives to traditional papers are encouraged and we will work to incorporate these into the peer review system, special sessions, or otherwise find a strategy of inclusion for the eventual conference. ASEE can be a bit conservative, but there isn’t a mandate to avoid alternative expressions. Here are several suggestions from our officers and members as encouragement: sessions of appreciation for those people and publications you have found personally inspiring or productive, thematic reflections/meta-analysis, poetry or spoken word, performance of papers, practicing organizing or inclusive dialogue, or active audience participation. 
We welcome submissions that address topics and questions other than those included on this CfP, but hope the information helps orient new members or those who might consider participating in our division. Information for Authors will be posted by ASEE regarding submission times and uploading material. All paper submissions are publish-to-present and will be peer reviewed by the LEES Division process after submission to ASEE’s paper management system. Abstracts should be approximately 300-500 words long and will be peer reviewed. 
In addition to technical papers, we also welcome proposals for partial or complete sessions. If you are proposing a paper as part of a partial or complete session (including but not limited to the themes listed above), please inform the Program Chair, Sean Ferguson, by email at Please provide the names of all authors intended to make up this partial or complete session.

Technological and Engineering Literacy/Philosophy of Engineering Division

The Technological and Engineering Literacy – Philosophy of Engineering (TELPhE) Division of ASEE invites authors to submit abstracts for papers for consideration for presentation at the 2022 ASEE Annual Conference & Exposition in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Technological and engineering literacy and the philosophy of engineering encompass a host of multidisciplinary topics, that are both “outward facing” from higher education and consider how engineering and technology interface with complex systems and emergent phenomena of our social life but also “inward looking” and ask fundamental questions that open up a unique space for examining the ideas, precepts, and principles that despite their nearness to our practices and embodiment in our interactions, remain elusive if noticed at all. We therefore invite submission of papers in the following thematic areas. 
• Exploring the ways in which engineering and technology can contribute to social justice 
• The impact of engineering and technological advancements in an increasingly globalized setting on society, public life, and individual experiences 
• Developments in the teaching of engineering and technology to non-engineers 
• Models and methods for developing educational continuums in engineering and technology, including the integration of engineering and technology topics with education majors 
• Historical and philosophical perspectives in engineering and technology 
• Perspectives on the engineering education, including consideration of its subject matter and content, forms of pedagogy and instruction, ethics and culture 
• Best practices learned from successful engineering or technological literacy programs at colleges and universities 
• Reflections on how engineering and technological literacy and the philosophy of engineering develop distinct capacities to understand, evaluate and use technology 
• Works-in-Progress: The division is also interested in papers describing work in progress. If submitting a paper of this nature, please note in the title that this is a “work in progress” to be considered in this category.

The TELPhE division seeks to promote a community of scholarship in these areas, to identify research issues, and to highlight best practices for enhancing engineering and technological understanding in society. While a major thrust of the division is to increase the understanding of engineering by the general public, member interests also include concepts emerging from the evolution of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education.

Contributions are welcome from authors in many disciplines, including education, engineering, engineering technology, business, history of technology, ethics, philosophy, and the study of science, technology, and society (STS).


Submissions must be completed electronically. Due dates and times indicated on the ASEE website will be followed. For additional information including deadlines and guidelines, refer to for the upcoming 2022 conference.

All paper submissions are publish-to-present. Paper submission involves a two-step review process consisting of an abstract submission (250-350 words in length) for review and potential acceptance, followed by a full manuscript submission for review and potential acceptance. The final paper must be accepted to present at the conference and for inclusion in the conference proceedings. At least one author for each paper must register for and present at the conference.

The TELPhE Division also welcomes proposals for non-traditional sessions at the ASEE Annual Conference. If you would like to propose such a session, please contact one of the program co-Chairs listed below.

• ABET, ATMAE (or other) accreditation at two-year institutions. 
• Federally-funded engineering and/or engineering technology grant projects awarded to two-year colleges. 
• Strategies for recruitment, retention and professional growth of new faculty at two-year colleges to replace retiring faculty. 
• Other topics of relevance to two-year engineering, engineering technology and engineering technician programs.

Paper submission is a three-step process: (1) submission of an abstract; (2) submission of a draft of the full paper; and (3) submission of the final paper. All abstracts must be submitted through the Monolith abstract & paper submission portal. Please check the ASEE website for final versions of the 2021 paper Author’s Kit, Publish-to-Present information, paper and poster guidelines, and deadlines.

Abstracts shall be 250–500 words in length and provide a clear statement of the paper’s objective, relevance to two-year colleges, assessment methods, and results. Abstracts will each receive at least one blind review. Authors of accepted abstracts will prepare a draft of the full paper for blind peer review; at least three reviewers will review the draft. To aid both the reviewers and the readers, papers in the TYCD should be limited to 15 pages, including references.

The division strongly encourages that authors conduct meaningful assessment of outcomes and report on the results of this assessment. Papers which provide little or no assessment of the activities described should be marked as “Work in Progress” in Monolith upon submission. As there is a limited number of technical sessions in the TYCD, Work in Progress papers, or multiple papers by the same author(s), or papers that do not suit the content of a technical session, may be assigned to the conference poster session.

Draft papers should be well-developed so that the reviewer has a sufficient understanding of the paper’s goals and content, as well as any research questions, data, etc., that may appear in the final paper. Reviewers may return drafts for revision if, among other issues, the narrative or other content needs clarification, the draft has grammatical and/or spelling errors (the reviewer will not correct the errors), lacks references, etc. Reviewers may also reject the draft. As necessary, authors should respond to all comments provided by each reviewer as part of the revision process.

Upon acceptance of the draft, the final paper will be submitted, which will be reviewed again. Acceptance of both the abstract and the final full manuscript is required for presentation in TYCD sessions and for inclusion in the conference proceedings (publish to present).

Papers accepted for publication must be presented by at least one registered conference participant in a designated technical session, or at a poster session held in the Exhibit Hall, as designated at the time of final submission.
