March 1st webinar on broadening underrepresented student participation in STEM

It is widely recognized that the U.S. needs to attract, retain, and adequately prepare a larger and more diverse Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) workforce to accelerate innovation and discovery, maintain global competitiveness, and expand economic prosperity. Intensive undergraduate research experiences (UREs), as well as mentoring and role modeling programs, are recognized as part of the solution for attracting and retaining more diverse and talented college students into STEM degrees. However, methodological limitations in the extant research have posed a replicability challenge for multifaceted programs, and less is known about the underlying process linking activities and professional relationships to positive outcomes. In this March 1st webinar, the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Center for Research on College-Workforce Transitions will host a presentation by Dr. Paul Hernandez on his program of research aimed at illuminating the impact and processes linking social and programmatic activities to broader participation in STEM careers among historically underrepresented students. The webinar will take place between 11am and noon CST and attendees can register for the event through this registration form.
