Associate Professor and Executive Director for STEM Outreach for the Volgenau School of Engineering, Kamaljeet Sanghera, was one of 43 people appointed to the new Virginia Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Education Commission that was established on July 17, 2019, by Governor Ralph Northam.

As a member of this new commission, Sanghera says, “This appointment means a lot because I will get the opportunity to collaborate with a lot of great individuals who are doing wonderful work across the state around STEM. To be a voice at the table where I get to represent Volgenau School at George Mason University is truly an honor. “  

Sanghera says she hopes to “expand STEM outreach and education initiatives to women and underrepresented populations as well as develop programs that not only prepare students to succeed in the industry but also allow them to truly impact the world.”
