Work-in-Progress: An Exploratory Analysis of STEM Student and Faculty Perceptions at a Historically Black College and University (HBCU)
This work-in-progress discusses the efforts of researchers focused on broadening participation in STEM fields. The survey data discussed was collected from students, faculty, and administrators from a single HBCU (Historically Black College and University) and focuses on the experiences of students in STEM. The purpose of the survey was to identify critical areas of concern that warranted further investigation. Preliminary data suggest that future research studies should focus on students’ confidence, study skills, and academic preparation as well as faculty development. Also, future research studies will investigate data from additional HBCUs and identify common areas of focus that should be addressed nationally.
