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.
