Gateway to Diversity in the Scientific and Technological Workforce.
Johnson, Elmima, Ed.; Calbert, Roosevelt, Ed.
The Division of Human Resource Development of the National Science Foundation (NSF) has the responsibility for broadening the participation of minority groups underrepresented in science, engineering and mathematics. This publication highlights a selection of model projects funded by the NSF to accomplish that mandate. The projects are presented in three sections concerning: an NSF precollege focus, an undergraduate focus, and faculty development and research initiatives. Within these sections 32 projects are presented from 5 minority targeted programs: (1) Comprehensive Regional Centers for Minorities; (2) Alliances for Minority Participation; (3) Research Careers for Minority Scholars; (4) Research Improvement in Minority Institutions; and (5) Minority Research Centers of Excellence. Program descriptions and goals, individual project profiles, and summary statistical data on programs are presented. Two appendices contain a list of Education and Human Resource minority-targeted projects by program and a list of other NSF publications of interest. (MDH)
