Understanding Educational Pathways from Community Colleges to Four-Year Universities  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

In this presentation, "Broadening Participation Among Women and Minorities in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics: Understanding Educational Pathways from Community Colleges to Four-Year Universities", Dr. Soko Starobin (Iowa State U) will share results from Iowa survey study that used her own instrument (212 items organized with 67 questions) known as: STEM Student Success Literacy (SSSL) survey. SSSL survey measures community college students' self-efficacy, social capital, and transfer knowledge that help students to successfully and seamlessly transfer from a community college to a four-year university in STEM fields. This study explores how institutions of higher education directly and indirectly create a learning environment that promotes the success of women and minorities. In this presentation, Starobin will focus on key factors that help traditionally underrepresented students and show the level of literacy of community college students regarding their transfer readiness for obtaining a baccalaureate degree in STEM fields.
