Resources are now available for a recent webinar on National, State, and Local Strategies that Work to Increase Nontraditional Participation and Completion under Perkins.
NASDCTEc sits on the advisory board for the STEM Equity Pipeline Project™, and this webinar discussed a research-based program improvement process targeted at nontraditional participation and completion. The National Science Foundation has re-invested in the project for another five years, and the presenters discussed the specific, high-impact strategies that State Education Agencies and Local Education Agencies are implementing to increase participation and completion rates, particularly for female students in STEM-related programs.
