Redefining Success in STEM

How do you define success in STEM? By discovering? Inventing? Graduating? By redefining what it means to be successful in STEM fields, institutional barriers can be lowered for underrepresented groups.

Corey Welch is a program manager of the STEM Scholars Program at Iowa State University. Modeled on the Biology Scholars Program at UC Berkeley, the program works to encourage students to succeed in STEM fields, preparing them for the workforce or to pursue a four-year degree. The program provides financial assistance, mentoring and, most importantly, the opportunity to learn and succeed in STEM.
