Research and Teaching: Broadening Access to Science with Support for the Whole Student in a Residential Liberal Arts College Environment
Gross, Deborah; Iverson, Ellen; Willett, Gudrun; Manduca, Cathryn
Journal of College Science Teaching, v44 n4 Mar 2015
This article describes two cohort programs that were used to support students from groups underrepresented in STEM fields at Carleton College. These programs were designed to support three aspects of student development: students' drive to succeed in STEM fields; students' sense of belonging in their student cohorts, in the college, in the STEM departments at the college, and in STEM disciplines more broadly; and students' learning in STEM courses (e.g., mentoring, advising, and research experiences).
