With the goal of identifying predictive factors for STEM student retention and persistence at The College of Wooster, the team used data from across The College to create and analyze statistical models.
This project was made possible by financial support from the following organizations: Hamburger Endowment for Collaborative Projects and Program Development and The Stem Success Initiative.
Members of Stem Success Initiative will be online to field comments on Nov. 5 from 11am-1pm.
