This project at Norfolk State University will focus on the development of STEM majors at the sophomore, junior, and senior levels. This new project features a Graduation Academy which focuses on moving students toward graduation and then on to graduate school. These features will include a Sophomore Summer Bridge Program, Departmental Junior Prep and Grad Societies for enhanced advising and mentoring of students at the sophomore, junior, and senior levels, Scholarships, as well as undergraduate research support. The goal is to increase the matriculation rate of students from sophomore to junior year by the third fall, to increase in the number of students maintaining eligibility for Federal Financial Aid, to increase the success-rate of students beyond the freshmen year and to increase in the diversity of the workforce in STEM fields.
