Many universities have developed innovative strategies to increase participation of underrepresented groups in STEM and biomedical science fields. This report reviews existing evidence for university diversity strategies, identifies key research gaps, and proposes concrete research actions to improve the evidence base for successful interventions. The results of these actions, if pursued, have the potential to transform the way universities do business, increasing investment in practices that work and helping leaders phase out those that do not.

For two years, each of the seven institutions planned and started implementing select practices to better align institutional practice and support with student access and degree completion. The new APLU/USU report provides an overview of such reforms to inform other institutions’ efforts.
