Featuring Pamela McCauley, Ph.D., Presidential Energy Fellow
Seeing Beyond Us: True Diversity
A book signing and meet-and-greet with students will take place immediately following the lecture.
Dr. Pamela McCauley is a nationally recognized speaker, Presidential Energy Fellow, an award-winning educator, and a full professor in the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management Systems at the University of Central Florida.
An insecure teen mother at age 15, Dr. McCauley struggled against the odds to complete her education. Dr. McCauley persevered and became the first African American woman to receive a Ph.D. in Engineering in the state of
Oklahoma. From there, she went on to become a Martin Luther King, Jr. Visiting Associate Professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics at M.I.T. Today, she is a full professor of engineering and according to the National Science Foundation, one of only a handful of African American women in the nation to hold this title. Her personal story of facing adversity to pursue her educational goals is told in her book Winners Don’t Quit . . .Today They Call Me Doctor.
