Colloquy on Minority Males in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics

The National Academy of Engineering (NAE), with funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), convened the Colloquy on Minority Males in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) following the release of reports about educational challenges facing minority males. NSF recognized the need to gather input from research communities that focus on minority males about how to frame studies of (1) gender-based factors that affect learning and choice in STEM education and the workforce for minority males, and (2) the impact of interactions between minority males and societal and educational systems. NSF also sought community input to inform the parameters of a future NSF research program on minority male participation in STEM. The colloquy involved researchers in education, psychology, sociology, mathematics, and physics. This report summarizes the breakout and plenary discussions.View External Website
