Newsletters

In this bi-annual edition of Denison's Educational Studies department newsletter Dr. Jerrel Beckham '96, Professor of Educational Studies & Black Studies, shares his current research on the underrepresentation of students of color in STEM fields:

“My overarching research explores the underrepresentation of people of color (namely Blacks, Latinas/os, Native Americans, and some groups of ethnic Asian Americans) in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields.

The study I am currently doing looks at Historically Black Colleges and University (HBCUs) in terms of the enduring role they have played in addressing this concern. Moreover, it also looks at The Mathematics and Science for Minority Students Program at Phillips Academy Andover, The Mathematics, Engineering, Science, Achievement (MESA) Program and the Meyeroff Program at University of Maryland Baltimore County. I argue that if these programs and schools as well as similar ones are reinforced, expanded, and able to work in concert then together they can make a meaningful difference in helping to change the current trends for people of color in STEM.”
