INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine, the largest and oldest diversity and inclusion publication in higher education, recently announced its 2021 Inspiring Programs in STEM Award, honoring colleges and universities that encourage and assist students from underrepresented groups to enter the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. ASEMS provides services to support students in graduating with a STEM degree, focusing on students who are underrepresented in STEM, such as first-generation college students, students from low-income households, those who transferred from community colleges, and students from underrepresented groups, including ethnic minorities and students with disabilities. The program is a partnership between two university units: Research, Innovation & Impact and Student Success and Retention Innovation.
