STEM Student Success: Investing in Minority Serving Institutions for Our Future Workforce, The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, Monday, 04. November 2019

Twenty first century advances require the United States to expand and diversify its science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)-capable workforce. The nation’s Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs)—institutions with an established and intentional focus to educate and train students of color—are uniquely poised to serve as a large national resource for developing the next generation of STEM talent.
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) will host a one-day meeting to convene key stakeholders from Minority Serving Institutions, federal and state government agencies, and philanthropic and private sectors from the Washington DC area and surrounding states to—


Examine promising approaches to increase MSI student success and workforce preparation in STEM fields


Discuss strategies for enabling stronger, more productive partnerships between MSIs and public and private stakeholders that support STEM investments


Develop ideas and strategies that bridge the gaps between the MSI community and government agencies


Raise awareness among policymakers, the media, and the public of the vital role of MSIs in supporting economic development and national security


NASEM recently published a consensus report on this topic, offering recommendations on action MSI stakeholders can take. The full report and other report resources can be found here .
