In Pursuit of a Diverse Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Workforce: Recommended Research Priorities to Enhance Participation by Under-Represented Minorities

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and the National Science Foundation Directorate for Education and Human Resources Programs presents the results of a study group meeting in September 2000 of 70 leading educators and researchers in the STEM fields. AAAS examined over 150 research efforts related to choice of college majors, retention in STEM college majors, academic mentoring at both the pre-college and higher education levels, and pursuit of a STEM doctorate and faculty positions. The report presents key research, identified gaps, and a research agenda for broadening participation in STEM fields.
