The STEM Trends In Enrollment & Persistence for Underrepresented Populations (STEP-UP) project is a new study that is investigating the underrepresented undergraduate students’ participation in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields at large, public, research universities. STEP-UP focuses on the experiences of undergraduate women, students of color, and low-income students in STEM majors, and factors that impact their enrollment, persistence, and degree completion in the sciences. STEP-UP project is generously funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Ford Foundation, and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
