Many colleges and universities offer science and engineering programs, but few can report retention and completion rates above 90% in their pipeline programs. The Center for STEM Diversity's mission is to provide the supportive learning environment necessary for every student to succeed.
As a part of this mission, the Center for STEM Diversity has created a number of programs to help retain a diverse STEM student body including Bridge to Engineering Success at Tufts (BEST), STEM Ambassadors, and Promoting Retention in Science in Engineering (PRISE). We also work with established programs that have been successfully keeping underrepresented students involved in the sciences and engineering such as Leadership Alliance and science and engineering professional societies. The Center for STEM Diversity hosts a series of workshops and seminars throughout the year to cultivate success around research and internships in our diverse community.
