LAS Student Success Initiative proposal is approved


Faculty members Chadly Stern, Lisa Travis, Carla Hunter, Nicole Allen, and Mark Aber’s proposal for the LAS Student Success Initiative project has been approved.

The Bridging Online Coursework and Research Experience (BOCARE) Program is an innovative, sustainable, and empirically informed program focused on increasing access to and engagement with the research enterprise among underrepresented racial and ethnic minority (URM) students.

BOCARE capitalizes on innovations in online learning and research to bridge course work completed early in a student’s undergraduate career with formal laboratory experience.

The program also includes consistent guidance and mentoring from faculty members who function as a glue through which URM students enter and remain in the research pipeline.
