Retention of students through to graduation in STEM disciplines is a complex phenomenon influenced by many factors, including psychosocial factors such as motivation and social networking. Our research at both Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs) provides insight into ways that Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) can and do address such psychosocial factors. We will provide quantitative and qualitative data highlighting aspects of psychosocial factors that impact students and graduates. We will also share the observations of those involved in STEM at MSIs, including students, graduates, faculty, administration, and staff.
