Capstone design courses are common across engineering programs nationwide. Yet, many departments and programs rely on one faculty member or a small handful of faculty members to teach their capstone design course. As a result these faculty members find themselves isolated, with limited mechanisms for sharing ideas and networking with peers who have similar responsibilities and concerns. This paper reports on the ongoing efforts to support the broader capstone design community through the development of the Capstone Design Hub (CDHub) as a web resource for capstone design programs. The features and structure of the CDHub are being developed through capstone faculty input, including results from a survey of the capstone community. To build awareness of the CDHub as well as to solicit additional feedback from the community, this paper describes development of the hub to meet community needs, initial population of the hub with resources focused on communication, and plans for continued expansion of the hub. © 2012 American Society for Engineering Education.
