Teaching to Increase Diversity and Equity in STEM (TIDES)

TIDESTeaching to Increase Diversity and Equity in STEM (TIDES) was awarded to Fayetteville State University’s Department of Math & Computer Science during spring 2014 via proposal request from the American Association of Colleges and University (AAC&U) to support “Strengthening Computer and Information Sciences Engagement and Learning (SCISEL)” program with goals of improving retention, persistence and graduation of women and underrepresented minority students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).

TIDES addresses the critical need for graduates in Computer and Information Sciences and Mathematics based on a research report from the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST, [9]) which states that “the products of STEM play a substantial and growing role in the lives of all Americans.

In adherence to improving and updating pedagogical practices of the Department of Math & Computer Science, the department’s grant administrators continuously design faculty professional development which changes the way we deliver curriculum to women (who constitute 70% of STEM enrollment) and minority students as identified in the department’s proposed grant.
