The New York City College of Technology has created a new coordinated initiative to attract, retain, and graduate students from under-represented groups in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). We have chosen to focus on student success in the college’s flagship programs in the sciences, mathematics, and engineering technology because these are among the college’s strongest programs and because they are areas in which many minority students are notably underrepresented. Increasing the numbers of underrepresented minority students who succeed in STEM disciplines is important not only to the economic vitality of the New York metropolitan area, but also to the nation as a whole. However, although the initiative targets minority students, all its programs and activities are open to all academically eligible students, faculty, and staff without regard to race, gender, national origin or other characteristics.
Produced 1 Valedictorian, 3 Salutatorians, and 2 CUNY All-Stars.
BMI students conducted research at Stanford, Johns Hopkins, Rutgers, and Columbia Universities and at the Brookhaven National Laboratory.
