In recognition of the critical need for an increased and diverse STEM workforce within the State of Michigan, the University of Michigan launched the Michigan STEM (M-STEM) Academy in the College of Engineering in the summer of 2008. Based on the successful and nationally recognized Meyerhoff Scholars Program at the University of Maryland-Baltimore County, M-STEM identifies talented diverse incoming engineering students with interest in STEM fields who, for reasons of socioeconomic class, first generation college student status, race, gender, or lack of high school rigor might not be successful in pursuing a Michigan STEM degree. M-STEM provides these students with a highly coordinated support system during the critical transition years between high school graduation and the declaration of a STEM concentration by the junior undergraduate year. Programmatic components and assessment of the first year will be discussed.
