Expand Undergraduate Research in STEM Areas

Specific aims:

  • To involve undergraduates in research within our existing STEM Directed Research program, the Scholars Day event, and Senior-Research Capstone projects
  • To support internships in local industry and State partnerships
  • To enable a diverse group of undergraduate participants to interact closely and extensively with STEM faculty mentors and peers within the partnership networks
  • To teach STEM majors emerging information technology tools that quantify environmental impacts in product life-cycle assessments
  • To grow our B.S. Biological Chemistry program with DSU
  • To grow our Environmental Science (ES) program
  • To build a strong collaborative partnerships with DSU and UD. STEM
