The Mentor Fellows internship program is an activity of the Mentor-Connect: Leadership Development and Outreach for ATE-2 project (DUE #1501183). The Co-Mentor program is a new addition to the Mentor-Connect project that was added this year to help prospective grantees in their discipline in tandem with a Mentor-Connect Mentor.
Christine Delahanty. Area Coordinator of Science and Engineering, Professor of Engineering and Physics at Bucks County Community College. I am currently PI of an ATE grant: "Increasing the Number of Engineering Technicians in Southeastern PA," and have developed new programs of study to promote workforce readiness. I began my career as an electrical engineer at General Electric, where I worked in both military and commercial satellite operations. I was advisor to two teams that made the finals of the NSF AACC CCIC (2016 and 2017). I earned a BS in physics from Villanova University, MS in electrical engineering from University of Pennsylvania, and an EdD in Educational Leadership and Management from Drexel University, with a concentration in Creativity and Innovation. My husband Fran and I have three wonderful daughters. We love to send each other pictures of our cats.

During my 17-year career in higher education, along with administrative positions, I have served as PI for NSF S-STEM, USDE Title III and TRiO Student Support Services grants, Instructional Director for an NSF-ATE project and mentor for the NIH Bridges to Baccalaureate program. I thoroughly enjoy performing utility work with my 53 Ford Jubilee tractor and playing games with our 12 grandchildren.
