• A national crisis is emerging for the United States
in global technological competitiveness (Rising
Above the Gathering Storm: Energizing and
Employing America for a Brighter Future, 2007;
Jackson, 2002).
• In the coming decade, the retirement of scientists
and engineers will significantly drain the labor
pool in Science, Technology Engineering, and
Math (STEM) fields (The Chronicle of Higher
Education, 2009).
At the same time, data on the state of
education in the United States indicate a
decreasing number of students choose to
major in and successfully compete in an
emerging global economy fueled by rapid
innovation and technological
breakthroughs.
However, a major question is whether the
science and high technology sectors in the
United States will have sufficient numbers
of STEM graduates to compete in the
changing global marketplace ( Attracting
Students to STEM Careers, 2002-2013).
Institutions of higher learning must play a
crucial role in preparing all students to be
competitive in the global economy.
However, all along the educational pipeline,
students are being lost in the fields of science,
technology, engineering and math.
This is particularly true for historically
underrepresented groups and women whose
participation and persistence rates in these
fields are dramatically lower than those in the
general student population (NSB, 2002).
Until recently, minorities and women
have held few jobs in STEM fields.
Despite comprising more than two-thirds
of the population, women and minorities
fill fewer than 25% of STEM positions in
the United States.
Programs designed to increase diversity in STEM
courses should include the following as components
of the student’s first year experience:
• Academic enrichment and challenging content
in science and math
• Contextual learning that enhances personal
meaning and motivation to learn
• College readiness experiences through oncampus or other college- connections
•Substantive, ongoing professional
development in math and science for
teachers
•Broad-based, collaborative
partnerships that promote high
expectations and a college-going
culture ( Davie- Butts, 2006).
• Mentoring programs that help to socialize
students to the STEM fields are a form of
support for women and minorities
• The presence and guidance of peer/ and or
faculty mentors have been shown to positively
affect retention ( Powell, 2010)
• Give students the opportunity to experience
hands-on mathematical concepts
• Offer connections and applications to
everyday life and emphasize the use of math
in the workplace ( Institute for women in
Trades, Technology and Science , 2010)
• Establish small work groups, cohorts and/or
learning communities.
The Quad City Partnership: Math and Science
Program incorporates all the components
necessary for a successful first year
experience.
However, this program implements
these components starting with the
students’ junior year of high school.
Prior to the traditional First –Year
Experience.
