Cultivating Applied Technology Competencies among Diverse Undergraduate Populations: Development and Assessment of Course Materials and Teaching Strategies

The goal of this project is to increase students’ knowledge of how small business is critical to the US fiber, fabric, and related products (FFRP) industry’s global competitiveness. Approximately one-half of all FFRP manufacturing firms in the US are small businesses. It is therefore very likely that graduates with degrees in this area will go on to either work for a small business, to partner with one during the production process, or to start their own.
