The primary purpose of the PIPESTEMS project at Tulsa Community College is to increase the number of students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines by:
1. building on programs focused on increasing retention and graduation;
2. enhancing existing student support services to fit specific needs of STEM scholars; and
3. offering learning enrichment activities such as science seminars, field trips/site visits to partner universities and businesses, and faculty mentoring.
Enrichment activities are based on best practices research, indicating increased enrollment and degree completion as a result of student participation in these activities. The Project Management Team, consisting of one PI and four Co-PIs will enroll 30 students into the PIPESTEMS project each scholarship year.
Project Management Team:
