As more underrepresented minority and first-generation students enter STEM degrees, Higher Education institutions are tasked with providing these students with the personal support they need – and deserve – to be successful.
In response, peer and alumni mentorship is being adopted by more and more STEM schools to improve student experience and outcomes.
This includes CSU Northridge College of Engineering and Computer Science and its former dean, Dr. S. K. Ramesh, now the Director and Lead Principal Investigator of the AIMS2 program (Attract, Inspire, Mentor AND Support Students) at the college.
Dr. Ramesh is using peer mentorship as a key part of the AIMS2 strategy to provide URM STEM students with the sense of belonging and inclusion that will propel them to graduation.
On October 2nd, 2018 Dr. Ramesh joined Mentor Collective Co-Founder and CEO Jackson Boyar to discuss how mentorship programs can help URM STEM students persist and graduate at a higher rate.
