Incoming STEM students continue to enter higher education underprepared to handle the rigor of the programs. This training will address specific challenges facing first- and second-year STEM students (when the dropout risk is the highest) and link these to solutions that work across the student lifecycle, including:

  • High school and pre-college outreach
  • Building student motivation for STEM majors
  • Proactive academic advising and bridge programs
  • In-classroom activities to improve engagement
