Lisberg, Anneke; Woods, Brett – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2018
Nearly one half of students planning to earn a STEM degree either change majors or leave college without a degree. The completion percentage is much lower for underrepresented minorities, of whom less than one third complete their STEM degree within six years. At the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, the STEM Boot Camp program was designed to…

Cagle, Nicolette L.; Caldwell, Lexi; Garcia, Rosina – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2018
The number of available jobs in environmental science, science, technology, engineering, and math (E-STEM) is growing rapidly. Nonetheless, women and Latinx, Black, and Indigenous people remain underrepresented in these fields. A number of diversity pipeline programs have been established with the goal of attracting and retaining individuals from…

Starks, B. Chad; Matthaeus, William H. – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2018
We comment on several major factors that contribute to the underrepresentation of specific groups (i.e. racial and ethnic minorities) in Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) educational programs, particularly at the advanced graduate levels. Recognition of the structural inequalities that create and reinforce these disparities…

Savaria, Michael; Monteiro, Kristina – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2017
Men outnumber women in the enrollment of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) undergraduate majors. Course syllabi are distributed to students during open enrollment and provide key insights into the courses. A critical discourse analysis of introductory engineering syllabi at a 4-year public university revealed limited to no…

Bosman, Lisa; Chelberg, Kelli; Winn, Ryan – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2017
Many barriers exist for American Indian students pursuing STEM degree programs. However, federally recognized Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs) are uniquely suited to overcome these barriers because of their shared mission to provide 21st Century educational opportunities for American Indian students. Qualitative and quantitative findings…

Dika, Sandra L.; Alvarez, Jaquelina; Santos, Jeannette; Suárez, Oscar Marcelo – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2016
Interest in engineering at early stages of the educational career is one important precursor to choosing to study engineering in college, and engineering-related clubs are designed to foster such interest and diversify the engineering pipeline. In this study, the researchers employed a social cognitive career theory framework to examine level of…
