PARTNERSHIP TO INCREASE MINORITIES IN BIOMEDICINE

Project: Research project

Description

DESCRIPTION The broad goal of
this program is to improve the academic competitiveness of under-
represented minority students at Miami-Dade Community College, Miami,
and to facilitate their transition into the biomedical sciences at the
University of Miami, Coral Gables. A partnership between the two
institutions would be created to (1) offer traineeships to support
minority students with an interest in the biomedical sciences; (2)
create a supportive environment for study, one that includes mentoring,
seminar, workshops, special transition courses and career counseling;
(3) socialize community college students into the university community
with laboratory research experiences; (4) develop an entry level course
in biology and a new course designed to attract students to the
sciences; (5) rejuvenate community college science teachers with a
fellowship program; and (6) provide incentives and mechanisms for
faculty from both institutions to work cooperatively to develop new
approaches in undergraduate science teaching.
