Research and Teaching: Broadening Access to Science With Support for the Whole Student in a Residential Liberal Arts College Environment

by: Deborah Gross, Ellen Iverson, Gudrun Willett, and Cathryn Manduca

This article describes two cohort programs that were used to support students from groups underrepresented in STEM fields at Carleton College. These programs were designed to support three aspects of student development: students' drive to succeed in STEM fields; students' sense of belonging in their student cohorts, in the college, in the STEM departments at the college, and in STEM disciplines more broadly; and students' learning in STEM courses (e.g., mentoring, advising, and research experiences).
