The Gap into Preparation Panel will consist of representatives from Academia who will be asked to provide their insights into the issues that, from an educational perspective, contribute to the Gap.
The moderator, Dr. Gilda Barabino, Dean of the CCNY Grove School of Engineering, with a distinguished panel of college presidents, senior professors, and educational theorists, in an exploration of:
- The issues that their colleges have encountered in preparing Hispanic and underrepresented students for STEM, academically, and the degree to which those issues are specific to minority students; and
- The approaches that their colleges should be taking to address those issues.
All conference attendees will be given the opportunity to ask questions of the panel and/or to provide their own insights.
