Reception: CSU’s Department of Engineering/AAHEP (Africa America Higher Eductaion Partnerships)

Since its inception, AAHEP has had significant success assisting African women of science obtain placement in PhD programs in Colorado universities. In the process AAHEP has developed connections and relationships among Colorado universities. It is a process that has slowly been taking place across the US, where AAHEP is creating bonds for future African women PhD scholars. Each university has expressed the mutual relationships in its own unique way. In CSU, AAHEP has found a great partner. As an expression of that partnership the Department of Mechanical Engineering hosted a reception for AAHEP on September 21st, 2011.  It was a reception attended by CSU students, and teaching staff as well as the Front Range community.
