Enhancing the success of underrepresented STEM students by teaching unwritten skills beyond the curriculum 

"There is significant disparity in the number of underrepresented minority students completing 

Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics degrees"

The Challenges: 

Mentorship

Limited or absence of supportive mentorship in their graduate program

Resources

Limited access to resources needed to excel in STEM programs

Development

Minimal exposure to career boosting opportunities

The Solution

In order to address these challenges, we developed a strategy that is tailored to the specific needs of underrepresented students.
