Collaboration Between Wake Tech and NC State to Increase the Number and Diversity of Geoscience Students

Collaboration Between Wake Tech and NC State to Increase the Number and Diversity of Geoscience Students
I have been successful in recruiting several students into geoscience majors in recent years simply through enthusiastic teaching and identifying students who are asking the right kinds of questions. I keep an email list of interested students, and forward any relevant information regarding educational opportunities. However, I have felt that most of this work has been somewhat haphazard, so when North Carolina State University (NC State) approached our faculty regarding a collaboration to recruit and train students in geoscience fields, I was on board immediately. We are in the first year of this collaboration, whose purpose is to increase the number and diversity of students pursuing a geoscience degree through a National Science Foundation grant named Diversity in the Geosciences, Making a Pathway to Success.
