There are over 700 Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) in the United States. In 2018, the National Academy of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine (NASEM) completed a study titled Minority Serving Institutions: America’s Underutilized Resource for Strengthening the STEM Workforce. This study addressed the role that MSIs play in contributing to the advancement of STEM fields due to their unique cultural and diverse positioning. The study uncovered the success and challenges that MSIs face in recruiting, retaining, and graduating students of color who are prepared to enter the STEM workforce. 

In this webinar, led by Thomas Rudin, Board Director, Board on Higher Education and Workforce at the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine and Tiffany E. Taylor, Associate Program Officer, Board on Science Education (BOSE) at the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, we will learn about this study and the findings which include how public and private sectors such as the utilities and communications can ensure the success of MSIs and what this means for the future workforce.
