A team of researchers from UCLA is on campus from Wednesday, 19 October through Friday, 21 October to learn more about our STEM programs. In particular, they identified St. Edward’s University as a top producer of STEM majors from the Latino/a population of students. Through interviews with our faculty, staff, and administrators, they hope to learn more about our strategies and pedagogical approaches. Results of their study, which includes just 11 institutions nationally, will be released after they complete their analysis.
The study team from the Higher Education Research Institute (HERI) at UCLA is led by prinicpal investigators Dr. Sylvia Hurtado and Dr. Kevin Eagan. The on site visit team includes Dr. Hurtado, Tracy Teel, Ana Karen Gomez, and Krystle Cobian. Here’s a document that provides profiles for all of the site visit team members.
Their visit and study is funded by a grant from the National Institutes for Health (NIH).
