A national crisis is emerging for the United States in global technological competitiveness (Rising Above the Gathering Storm: Energizing and Employing America for a Brighter Future, 2007; Jackson, 2002). In the coming decade, the retirement of scientists and engineers will significantly drain the labor pool in Science, Technology Engineering, and Math (STEM) fields (The Chronicle of Higher Education, 2009).
At the same time, data on the state of education in the United States indicate a decreasing number of students choose to major in and successfully compete in an emerging global economy fueled by rapid innovation and technological breakthroughs.
However, a major question is whether the science and high technology sectors in the United States will have sufficient numbers of STEM graduates to compete in the changing global marketplace ( Attracting Students to STEM Careers, 2002-2013).
Institutions of higher learning must play a crucial role in preparing all students to be competitive in the global economy.
However, all along the educational pipeline, students are being lost in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math. This is particularly true for historically underrepresented groups and women whose participation and persistence rates in these fields are dramatically lower than those in the general student population (NSB, 2002).
In fall 2009, the Obama Administration presented a plan to improve the nation’s economic competitiveness by improving education in and attracting more students to STEM fields.. Until recently, minorities and women have held few jobs in STEM fields. Despite comprising more than two-thirds of the population, women and minorities fill fewer than 25% of STEM positions in the United States.
Programs designed to increase diversity in STEM courses should include the following as components of the student’s first year experience: Academic enrichment and challenging content in science and math Contextual learning that enhances personal meaning and motivation to learn College readiness experiences through on- campus or other college- connections
Substantive, ongoing professional development in math and science for teachers Broad-based, collaborative partnerships that promote high expectations and a college-going culture ( Davie- Butts, 2006).
Mentoring programs that help to socialize students to the STEM fields are a form of support for women and minorities The presence and guidance of peer/ and or faculty mentors have been shown to positively affect retention ( Powell, 2010)
Give students the opportunity to experience hands-on mathematical concepts Offer connections and applications to everyday life and emphasize the use of math in the workplace ( Institute for women in Trades, Technology and Science, 2010)
Establish small work groups, cohorts and/or learning communities.
The Quad City Partnership: Math and Science Program incorporates all the components necessary for a successful first year experience.
However, this program implements these components starting with the students’ junior year of high school. Prior to the traditional First –Year Experience. Prior to admission to college
