An Undergraduate Student of Color on the Study of Success in STEM
Williams, Bobby R.
New Directions for Institutional Research, n148 p105-108 Win 2010
In this chapter, the author looks back at his undergraduate experiences and ahead to his own future as an education researcher. He also offers recommendations for future research on students of color in STEM. His suggested topics of research include: (1) the factors that compel racial minorities to choose STEM majors; (2) the learning and developmental outcomes of racial minority students who engage in meaningful research at the undergraduate level; (3) what impact engagement in student organizations have on the academic achievement, leadership development, and retention of racial minorities in STEM; and (4) the effects of peers on racial minority achievement and persistence in STEM.
