Brandeis Science Posse: Talented Students Bring Diversity to the Field. Carnegie Results
Theroux, Karen
Carnegie Corporation of New York
The Science Posse program at Brandeis University aims to increase the recruitment and retention of students from disadvantaged and underrepresented backgrounds in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) disciplines. A grant from Carnegie Corporation helped support the development of the program, which has brought 50 students from New York City high schools to Brandeis and is now to starting to expand into other institutions. After five productive years, plans are under way to build on the program's initial success and make Science Posse not only a permanent fixture at Brandeis, but a source of inspiration, information, and guidance for other schools starting similar programs.
