Minorities in STEM: Empowering the Next Generation

For decades, minorities have been underrepresented in STEM. With an eye on systemic injustice, how do we enable and encourage minorities to seek STEM education, increase their confidence to pursue these advanced degrees, and create communities of support?

Join us with Dr. Freeman A. Hrabowski, President of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, for a conversation on race, STEM education, and academic success.

Dr. Hrabowski’s research focuses on science and math education with a focus on minority participation and performance. He has been named one of America’s Best Leaders, and one of the “100 Most Influential People in the World” (Time, 2012). In 2005, he received an honorary degree from Duke University. He currently serves as a consultant to the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, the National Academies, and universities and school systems nationally.

Reception to follow.
