HBCUs as a Strategic Resource to Advance Diversity in STEM

In response to the recent racial unrest, the National Science Board (NSB) issued a statement on racism calling for "increased inclusion of Black people in Science and Engineering (S&E) at all levels, from the classroom to the research lab to the boardroom... We recognize the unique legacy and important role of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) in contributing to the S&E research enterprise and in educating future STEM leaders." In partnership with the QEM Network, the STEM for All Video Multiplex will showcase HBCU-based research that advance opportunities in STEM for underrepresented students. The videos and panel discussion will cover the latest scientific innovations at HBCUs, and explore ways to use HBCUs as a strategic resource to advance excellence and diversity in STEM.
