SEAPD-STEM builds on the success of the Alabama Alliance for Students with Disabilities in STEM (AASD-STEM), an NSF-funded collaboration between Auburn University, Auburn University Montgomery, Alabama State University, Tuskegee University, and Southern Union State Community College.  Over the past seven years, AASD-STEM has provided academic and social support for over 200 students with disabilities in STEM majors through peer and faculty mentoring, research internships, group meetings, annual conferences, and student support organizations. SEAPD-STEM will increase the reach of AASD-STEM by adding an additional 16 institutions to the program, for a total of 21 participating colleges and universities in six states (Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Tennessee) and Washington, D.C. The goals of SEAPD-STEM are the following: (1) Increase the quality and quantity of persons with disabilities completing associate, undergraduate, and graduate degrees in STEM disciplines and entering the STEM workforce, especially among minorities, veterans, and women, (2) Increase the quality and quantity of post-doctoral fellows and junior faculty with disabilities in STEM fields, (3) Improve academic performance of students with disabilities in secondary level science and mathematics courses, (4) Enhance communication and collaboration among post-secondary institutions, industry, government, national labs, and community in addressing the education of students with disabilities in STEM discipline, and (5) Assess our activities to understand what works to support the matriculation and retention of STEM students with disabilities in science followed by broad dissemination through workshops, conference presentations, webinars, and peer-reviewed publications. SEAPD-STEM is funded under NSF award numbers 1649344, 1649236, 1649276, and 1649285.
