Spaulding, Dean T.; Kennedy, Jelane A.; Rózsavölgyi, Amanda; Colón, Wilfredo – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2020
While the majority of STEM persistence has focused on outcomes for first-year students there has been little investigation into the outcomes for peer mentors and no investigation into whether peer mentors perceive the experience differently based on gender, ethnicity or other relevant variables. The purpose of this study was to examine an archival…

Pidaparti, Ramana M.; Graceraj, Prabaharan P.; Nagel, Jacquelyn K. S.; Rose, Christopher Stewart – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2020
Undergraduate engineering education must train students to not only solve design challenges that transcend disciplinary boundaries, but also communicate, transfer knowledge, and collaborate across technical and non-technical boundaries. One approach to achieving this goal is teaching bio-inspired design (BID) in an engineering curriculum. In…
