5-Years Strategic Plan

The United States has traditionally produced the world’s top research scientists and engineers which has led to life changing breakthroughs in both science and technology. These scientific and technological innovations are changing the way we work, the way we live, and the way we socialize. Accordingly, it is not surprising that Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) are by far, the most important driver to the United States’ economic competitiveness and growth. continue reading...

Coppin State University(CSU) follows the guidelines of the National Science Foundation on what constitutes a STEM field which includes subjects in the fields of Chemistry, Computer and Information Technology Science, Cyberinfrastructure, Engineering, Geosciences, Life Sciences, Mathematical Sciences, Physics , Social Sciences (Anthropology, Economics, Psychology and Sociology), and STEM Education and Learning Research.

In particular, the Coppin-STEM program will expand an existing After-School Math Program, wherein students from three nearby well established high-schools are provided with STEM tutoring, with the expectation that it will evolve into a program where students can have dual enrollment into college level math and sciences classes. To retain students who are already enrolled at CSU, we will implement a variety of intervention strategies that have proven to be successful in retaining minority students in the STEM fields. These integrated intervention strategies will be anchored by an intensive early two-year institutional research experience. Equally important to the success of our students will be a redesign of our curriculum to encourage computer laboratory experiences, discovery learning, technical writing, and oral communication (recommended by Tsui [6]). The culminating point of the Coppin-STEM model will be the need to provide K-12 teachers with effective professional development that will improve their content knowledge across disciplines. continue reading...
