4. Engineering Unleashed Resources – Cards in this category are general resources for the community. Examples include branding guides, card templates, or how-to guides for Engineering Unleashed. This broad category is meant for resources and tools that connect to the community and mission.
5. Professional Learning – Cards in this category are focused on sharing faculty development approaches, professional development resources, or other items connected to faculty professional growth and development.
