  1. Building Communities of Stakeholders for STEM research and education ORAU Annual Meeting -- March 22, 2012 Elizabeth S. Boylan Program Director STEM Higher Education

  2. STEM Higher Education To improve the quality and increase the diversity of higher education in STEM . Elizabeth S. Boylan

  3. Sloan’s STEM Higher Education Program Interactions and Synergies

  4. Presented by Lynne Molter, AAAS, February 18, 2012 Funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Student Migration in and out of STEM Fields CUSTEMS Consortium for Undergraduate STEM Success

  5. CUSTEMS Goals CUSTEMS • Develop appropriate and effective ways to analyze data for a wide range of institutions • Identify patterns of and longitudinal changes in retention, migration, and attrition • Establish a self-sustaining group of institutions who are committed to adapting their strategies for successful educational outcomes for STEM students

  6. Data Analysis CUSTEMS • Office of Educational Assessment at the University of Washington --performs standardized analyses, including descriptive tables, charts, and graphs • Office of Institutional Research at Swarthmore --performs decision tree and cluster analyses, and uses other visualization techniques; it also responds to specialized requests from participants

  7. CUSTEMS Participants (About 40 institutions) • Public universities, including Thurgood Marshall College Fund members • Private universities • Liberal arts colleges CUSTEMS

  8. Course, Grade, and GPA Data CUSTEMS • Grade in gateway course vs. retention • Graduation GPA vs. retention • By Major • Overall • Disaggregated by discipline; gender; under-represented minority, first generation, socioeconomic status, etc.

  9. Sample 1 Student Migration Patterns Based on Grade in Gateway Course by STEM Discipline and Gender CUSTEMS

  10. THE CENSUS OF MARINE LIFE Program director: Jesse Ausubel • Decade-long (2000-2010) program to assess and explain the diversity, distribution and abundance of marine life • >2700 scientists, >80 countries, >540 field expeditions • Approximately $80 million from Sloan toward total project costs of $650 million (12%) • Expansion of the Encyclopedia of Life: >100,000 marine species now have EOL pages • Products: 3100 publications, ~250 PhD theses, books, films, artwork Elizabeth S. Boylan

  11. Library of “DNA Barcodes” for species identification -- about 35,000 marine species barcoded to date

  12. Barcodes Showed Mislabelings as More Expensive Fish“Red Snapper” also identified via DNA bar-coding as: Slender Pinjalo (SE Asia) and Acadian Redfish (North Atlantic) “Red Snapper” Red Snapper DNA ID: Nile Perch Red Snapper DNA ID -- Nile perch to scale “Red Snapper” FishBase: D Flescher FishBase: John Casselman Range map: FishBase Range map: FishBase Source: Stoeckle & Strauss

  13. DNA Learning Center Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory
