Save the Date! June 6 event on Barriers and Opportunities for 2-Year and 4-Year STEM Degrees


Join your colleagues at this event highlighting the Board on Science Education's recent report Barriers and Opportunities for 2-Year and 4-Year STEM Degrees: Systemic Change to Support Students' Diverse Pathways.  This report examines barriers that can prevent students from earning the STEM degrees to which they aspire.  The report finds that students face a myriad of barriers, from being unable to schedule required course sequences in an efficient way to the higher cost of some STEM courses than other majors. 

At the same time, the pathways to STEM degrees for many students are not linear, as most models assume.  The report recommends how policy makers and institutions--at all levels, from departments to the federal government--can both learn more about students' varied pathways and better support them in reaching their goals and completing their degrees.
 
The briefing will include discussions from the committee chair, Shirley Malcom, American Association for the Advancement of Science and other panelists.  Please check the website below for a soon to be uploaded agenda.
