Hill, Lucas B.; Savoy, Julia N.; Austin, Ann E.; Bantawa, Bipana – Innovative Higher Education, 2019
Multi-institutional networks have become an increasingly common change mechanism in higher education, especially in undergraduate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education reform. However, little is known about the impact of such networks on participating institutions. This study examined one network, the Center for the…

Okahana, Hironao; Klein, Carrie; Allum, Jeff; Sowell, Robert – Innovative Higher Education, 2018
This article is a result of the analysis of student-level enrollment records from twenty-one research universities in the United States, and it contributes to a more robust understanding of timely completion of STEM doctorates by underrepresented minority students. Using multivariate logit regression models, findings indicated that Hispanic/Latino…

Baiduc, Rachael R.; Drane, Denise; Beitel, Greg J.; Flores, Luke C. – Innovative Higher Education, 2017
Undergraduate research experiences may increase persistence in STEM majors. We describe a research program that targets first-year students selected for their curiosity and attitudes towards science. We explain the implementation of the program over 3 years and present evaluation data using a group of matched controls. Participants and controls…

Bernstein-Sierra, Samantha; Kezar, Adrianna – Innovative Higher Education, 2017
In this article we report on our examination of the challenges faced by four successful and long-standing national STEM reform communities. Drawing primarily on interview data from a large-scale, multi-year study informed by literature on "communities of practice" (CoPs) (Wenger et al. 2002), we describe five categories of challenges…

Baiduc, Rachael R.; Linsenmeier, Robert A.; Ruggeri, Nancy – Innovative Higher Education, 2016
Today's science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) graduate students and postdoctoral fellows are tomorrow's new faculty members; but these junior academicians often receive limited pedagogical training. We describe four iterations of an entry-level program with a low time commitment, Mentored Discussions of Teaching (MDT). The…

Holmes, Maja Husar; Jackson, J. Kasi; Stoiko, Rachel – Innovative Higher Education, 2016
This exploratory qualitative study examined faculty responses to a collegiality-building process called Dialogues. The process used a series of discussions and activities to guide faculty members toward a common, mutually beneficially goal, while changing patterns of interaction. The responses revealed how faculty members experienced…

Thomas, Nicole; Bystydzienski, Jill; Desai, Anand – Innovative Higher Education, 2015
Higher education institutions often use mentoring to socialize faculty members into their academic disciplines and to retain them. Mentoring can also be used to change organizational culture to meet the needs of historically marginalized faculty members. In this article we focus on peer mentoring circles for women STEM faculty at a large,…

Gonyo, Claire P.; Cantwell, Brendan – Innovative Higher Education, 2015
This qualitative study involved interviews of 32 faculty principle investigators at three research institutions and explored how they view the role of students within physical and life science labs. We used socialization theory and student engagement literature to analyze faculty views, which can contribute to student investment in STEM fields.…
