Lucietto, Anne; Russell, Liza; Schott, Emily – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2018
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) is well known throughout the academe. Several studies have been done focusing on various aspects of students majoring in these disciplines, who they are, how they function, and the need to diversify the student and professional population. The authors realized that fewer studies are…

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…

Murray, Susan L.; Phelps, Julie; Altabbakh, Hanan – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2018
It is common for college classes to contain basic information that must be mastered before learning more difficult concepts or applications. Many students struggle with learning facts, terms, or fundamental concepts; in some situations, students are even unsure about what they should study. Flashcards are a well-established educational aid for…

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…
