Concurrent Session
Wednesday January 21, 2015 2:45pm to 4:00pm

To ensure that science remains signature strength both for the economy and for societal progress, the U.S. will need to make an unprecedented investment in STEM success for all students, especially those from low-income backgrounds and underserved communities of color.  What will that investment look like?  How do we ensure that talented students both persist in college and acquire the high level skills they need to create solutions for our future?
