The Power of Partnerships with Minority Serving Institutions
At STEMconnector, we are thrilled to unveil our latest research report, The Power of Partnerships with Minority Serving Institutions.
Scientific and technological advancement play a fundamental role in shaping societal progress and competitiveness in our rapidly globalizing world. Yet, this progress is shadowed by a critical issue: a sizable segment of our population remains underrepresented in the very fields driving this advancement, a gap most glaring in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) workforce.
Communities of color play a crucial role in the development and progression of STEM in the United States, yet are widely underrepresented in many STEM fields. Addressing this disparity within the STEM ecosystem requires focused, strategic efforts, and innovative solutions, a path that leads us to consider the power and potential of partnerships with Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs).
