Building a STEM Pathway: Xavier University of Louisiana’s Summer Science Academy Webinar/Event

January 27, 2015

On Thursday, February 19, 2015 the Alliance for Excellent Education and Xavier University of Louisiana, a small historically black university, held a discussion about the Xavier Summer Science Academy, a dynamic pre-collegiate program that prepares middle and high school students to enter college and complete a STEM degree program. The academy helps Xavier continue to rank first nationally in the number of African American students who earn STEM degrees and first nationally in the number who go on to complete medical school. Panelists highlighted the rationale, design, and impact of the Xavier Summer Science Academy to address the underlying reasons for the enormous preparation gap between high school and college, particularly among the growing number of minority students.
