(STEM)^3:Scaling Up a Successful (STEM)^2 Transfer Model
This project addresses broadening participation challenges concerning underrepresented minority students seeking STEM degrees at insitutions of higher education in Southern California. Data show that Latino students in particular are well-represented at local two-year colleges (TYC) but less well-represented among STEM bachelor’s degree recipients. In order to promote success for TYC students with an interest in STEM, we will build upon and expand a proven model for strengthening transfer pathways from TYC to four year STEM degree programs.
