The ultimate goal of this project is to develop and pilot novel interventions to enhance success of underrepresented students in STEM disciplines and ultimately to increase their retention in and pursuit of careers in STEM disciplines. The project partners a Primarly White, Doctoral Institution, Highest Research Activity (University of Georgia) with three Historically Black Colleges and Universities (Clark-Atlanta University, Fort Valley State University, and Savannah State University) and a Hispanic-Serving Institution (Florida International University). Through its initial investigations and conversations, the project team has identified three key questions that will be addressed by this project: (1) Can an academic year “exchange program” be designed to enhance underrepresented students’ cultural competence and thereby academic success in STEM disciplines? (2) Can underrepresented students’ experiences at PWI/R1 and MSI institutions be mined to identify aspects of institutional culture that enhance or limit their success in STEM disciplines? (3) Can underrepresented students’ experiences at PWI/R1 and MSI institutions be harnessed to train STEM educators to value learning-through-diversity and offer more inclusive instruction?
