Colleges Are Urged to Cooperate to Bring More Women and Minorities Into Science

Chronicle of Higher Education (02/27/12) Paul Basken

EducationCounsel and the American Association for the Advancement of Science recently offered a plan for producing more science and engineering graduates by bringing research universities into student-centered alliances with two-year, liberal arts, and minority-serving institutions.  The plan calls on colleges from all sectors to work harder at making sure that students at institutions with few or no science offerings have many more options for getting science and engineering training at nearby campuses.  EducationCounsel's Arthur L. Coleman says the plan reflects a realization that existing efforts to improve the nation's output of science and engineering graduates have focused to narrowly on helping the students, not paying sufficient attention to the institutional structures surrounding them.  A recent U.S. Department of Education report cites the Georgia Institute of Technology, which has an engineering transfer program with 19 other Georgia institutions, including community colleges, historically black colleges and universities, and other state four-year institutions.  The report also cites a Massachusetts Institute of Technology program that allows students from nearby liberal-arts colleges to take a lab course.  The goal is to encourage more colleges and universities to find ways to facilitate a pathway for students seeking a science and engineering education.
