Dr. Lamont A. Flowers recently presented original research at a conference on diversity in science education in St. Louis, MI. “Beyond Stock Stories and Folktales: African Americans and the Pipeline to the Professoriate: An Evidence-based Examination of STEM Fields” was held at Washington University in November. Dr. Flowers discussed factors that influence African American male students who attend HBCUs to achieve academically and to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The statistical information presented was based on a National Science Foundation grant-funded project titled, “Mixed Methods Study of the Factors Influencing Recruitment, Retention, and Academic Achievement of Undergraduate Females and Males in STEM Disciplines at HBCUs” (Award Number, 0929148).
