Abstract

This paper describes a new program, STEM Recruitment, Retention, and Graduation (STEM-RRG), geared toward increasing the number of low-income minority students pursuing degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics fields. STEM-RRG consists of several projects that implement a number of activities, including enrichment programs, scholarships, internships, research experiences, mentoring and tutoring, advising and career counseling, experiential training, recruitment of high-potential students, and faculty professional development. The paper will briefly describe the overall program and present details about two projects: (a) Pre-engineering Cohort, and (b) Mathematics Enrichment Project.
