Research on STEM and Diversity

SCIO staff and affiliated researchers have been conducting research on the status of STEM programs, STEM student enrolment, and gender and racial diversity in STEM among both students and faculty members at CCCU member institutions. We have also been investigating the challenges facing underrepresented faculty members in STEM. Find out more.

With this new CCCU project, the John Templeton Foundation encourages faith-based institutions of higher-education to contribute to the vitality of mainstream scientific research, and to invite faculty and students to embrace scientific questioning and discovery as valuable activities for religious communities, and indeed for humanity as a whole.
