Major Unit:

Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education

Sub Unit: Board on Higher Education & Workforce

RSO: Dahlberg, Maria

Subject/Focus Area: Education; Policy for Science and Technology

Project Scope
Under the auspices of BHEW and CWSEM, and in collaboration with BOSE, an ad hoc committee will conduct a study of STEMM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medical) mentoring programs and practices at the undergraduate and graduate levels.  The study will have a particular focus on identifying evidence (or lack thereof) regarding successful programs for mentoring of individuals traditionally marginalized in STEMM fields, including women, individuals from racial/ethnic groups historically underrepresented in STEMM, and first-generation college students.  Guiding questions for the study will include the following:

--What are common definitions and differentiations among the various models of mentoring in STEMM?

--What are the most successful elements of effective mentoring relationships in STEMM education at the various stages of career development?

--How can and should mentees and mentors be trained to be more effective in the mentor-mentee relationship?

The committee will issue a final report and also create an online interactive guide of effective programs and practices that can be adopted and adapted by institutions, departments, and individual faculty members.

Project Duration: 22 months
