Expanding Pathways to Science, Engineering and Mathematics (EPSEM) Program Demographics and Tracking, 2004 to 2008
 

Summary: Expanding Pathways to Science, Engineering and Mathematics (EPSEM) Program
Demographics and Tracking, 2004 to 2008
The Expanding Pathways to Science, Engineering and Mathematics (EPSEM) program seeks to
inspire and nurture students towards pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering and
mathematics (STEM) through multi-tiered, articulated academic mentorship. This program
targets talented and motivated students who can benefit from additional encouragement and
academic support. We build partnerships with K12 schools and community colleges to expand
the pathways in which such students may successfully pursue their academic and career
aspirations in STEM fields.
Recruitment and Selection Demographics: The table to the right gives diversity demographics
of our applicants and interns for Summers 2004 through 2008. We have been quite successful at
both recruiting female and minority students. Current national statistics (NCES, 2005) indicate
that only 15% of all STEM bachelor's degrees go towards minority students our 56% minority
participation rate greatly exceeds that.
EPSEM Program Impacts and
Student Accomplishments: We have
performed tracking of the activities of
former EPSEM CC participants, from
Summers 2004 to 2008. There have
been a total of 142 students from
