Participating MMSI Universities
The Minority Male STEM Initiative is funded by a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
The overall objective of the M2 STEM Initiative is to design a means through which A۰P۰L۰U can most effectively engage A۰P۰L۰U member institutions in a comprehensive dialogue on the subject of minority males in STEM with the ultimate aim of providing leading public higher education institutions with the tools, information, and perspectives that will assist them in their practice in identifying, retaining, and graduating minority males in STEM fields.
The Task Force will meet over a period of 11 months, from January through November 2011. At the conclusion of the planning process, the Task Force will have developed a comprehensive plan that will be used to shape and guide the longer-term Minority Male STEM Initiative. Specific outcomes of the Planning Task Force will include the following:
