“We all know that there’s plenty of evidence that if you teach STEM a little bit differently, where your mind-set is not that of a gatekeeper … but your mind-set is to teach, students actually succeed. Everybody in the community is going to benefit, because we’re not just going to teach better to Latino students, we’re going to teach better to every student at Queens College.”

HSI-STEM Team and QC President Félix Matos Rodríguez at Queens College night at Mets game in summer 2018

"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.”
