The Development of the Online Graduate Student Panel Experience for African American STEM Graduate Students
Save to My Collections
Due to an increase in the population size of underrepresented minorities (URMs) and a critical shortage of U.S. citizens who are entering into academic majors involving Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), it is critical for the United States to create a “pipeline” for undergraduate minorities to increase their presence in STEM disciplines. Graduate school panels are frequently used to disseminate information to students regarding post-baccalaureate STEM education. This research is an attempt to virtualize audience-specific graduate school panels through an online multimedia application. We hypothesize that URM undergraduates with access to the application will be more encouraged to pursue graduate studies in STEM disciplines and that URM graduate students will benefit from peer support via the application, increasing their likelihood of obtaining a graduate STEM degree.
