Changing the Face of STEM in the U.S. Virgin Islands through Targeted Interv...

NSF Awards: 1649300

2017 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 9-12, Undergraduate, Graduate

The goal of this Pilot is to create a transferable model that uses innovative partnerships between universities, governmental and non-governmental organizations, a professional society, and businesses, to create a Local Backbone Organization with a shared vision for change and common success metrics to achieve collective impact in broadening participation in Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics (STEM) in the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI). The University of the Virgin Islands (UVI) is the project lead and has a strong culture for the support and development of STEM students. The strategic plan contains mutually-reinforcing activities, including targeted interventions and cross-cutting support programming, to build scientific identity and thereby increase interest and engagement in STEM by U.S. Virgin Islanders. The proposed model is scalable and transferable to other communities, particularly Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) who seek to broaden participation in STEM in the field sciences. If funded, this Pilot will launch an NSF Alliance in Year 2 and become a model for broadening participation in STEM across the nation.
