FACULTY-STUDENT STEM MENTORING PROGRAM
NCICU’s Faculty-Student STEM Mentoring Program seeks to improve student retention and graduation rates among first generation college students, women, and students of color majoring in science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM).
Twelve of North Carolina’s private, nonprofit colleges and universities participate in the program, including the five historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). Components of the program will include mentor support, student scholarships, career workshops, guest speakers, and faculty and peer connections. Students work in small groups with a peer mentor who is a junior or a senior, as well as with a faculty member. Professionals in STEM fields are invited to share their experiences with participants and to become part of a network of mentors.
