Experts: STEM program a model for serving minority students

A 30-year-old pre-college summer program for middle and high school students is credited with helping Xavier University of Louisiana continue to rank first nationally in the number of black students earning degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, and first in the U.S. in the number of minority students who go on to complete medical school, according to a new report. Marianna Hayes, senior fellow for the Alliance for Excellent Education, showcased the program in the report Building a STEM Pathway: Xavier University of Louisiana's Summer Science Academy. The report examined how the summer bridge program prepares students of color to succeed in STEM fields and how it relies on a particular academic and social learning structure to build students' competencies in STEM coursework. She said the program serves as a model to states and districts for improving the participation of underrepresented student groups in STEM careers.
