“STEM plays an important role in our city, state, and nation and will continue to do so in the future. […] It is crucial that we attract students to the STEM fields, especially traditionally underrepresented students.”
—Congresswoman Grace Meng
Our Congresswoman’s double commitment here—to the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), and to the students who have traditionally had less access to these fields—has been borne out with the award of a Hispanic-Serving Institutions STEM grant to Queens College and Queensborough Community College. This partnership aims to enrich teaching practices and expand student mentoring, while facilitating the evolution of promising young STEM candidates into fully-fledged members of the scientific community.
