Texas Hispanic STEM Research Alliance Panel Presentation

Members of our Texas Hispanic STEM Research Alliance hosted a panel presentation at the 11th Annual Conference of the Center for Mexican American Studies and Research. The conference was held at Our Lady of the Lake University in San Antonio, TX, on March 27–28, 2014.

The panelists discussed the research alliance’s efforts to better understand and use research to improve instruction and educational outcomes of Hispanic students in STEM disciplines. The discussion focused on the work of the Texas Hispanic STEM Research Alliance, how members developed their research agenda, and the benefits members have received from this work.
