    Thank you for watching the IN LSAMP 2020 Video. We are interested in your feedback. We hope you will consider sharing responses to one of the following prompts or share your own insight. 1. Do you believe this video will inspire students to consider STEM? 2. Do you believe this video will foster pride and a sense of belonging in the undergraduate students seeking a STEM career? 3. What did you find most interesting in the video? 4. What feedback would you share to encourage students to consider a STEM career? 5. What would you like us to include in videos in the future?

     

    Thank you again for sharing your time with us!

    Wow! I am so excited to share this video with my own students at the majority-minority urban commuter university where I teach chemistry. From learning about the hopes and dreams of so many of these amazing people, I can tell that this video will lift them up and inspire them to new heights. Thank you for the dedication you put into making this. What I most loved in the video is Ms. Elyse Thompson's comment at the very end - it's not only for her, but also for those who will follow along the same lines. Every person matters.

    Great video. How are the students selected for the summer research program?

    Hello Overtoun, Thank you for watching our video and commenting. The students are selected through an online application process. Students submit short essay responses to three questions alongside several short questions to determine STEM interest and their research area of interest. These applications are reviewed with campus coordinators and faculty mentors who have served in the program to identify the best matches for their available positions. Students are notified in mid to late March to either interview with their potential faculty mentor and complete additional hiring paperwork.

    Very creative videography and wonderful program! I especially like how you followed one scholar through the video.

    There are many similarities to our program (Cal-Bridge) and I would be interested in sharing ideas and hearing what you think of our video. I especially like the ePortfolio and may steal that idea, especially if you can help me learn how you implemented it.

    Hello Alexander, Thank you for watching our video and commenting. I welcome the opportunity to connect and share ideas. I also teach a summer bridge course at IUPUI so was excited to see you noted your Cal-Bridge program. The ePortfolio is a wonderful tool and is free for students to join and use. The reason I loved this format is because the students can take the ePortfolio with them after graduation and it connects to their LinkedIn. Here is the website for more details: thecn.com 

    Please send an email and I can share a rubric I use with my course that helps with new students. I'm happy to share any items I created for my course. I'll view your video now.

    Hi there! What a wonderful project, thanks for sharing! I love Ms. Thompson's final quote about forging a path for herself and the people who are going to follow behind her.

    I'm interested in knowing more about the specialities your students have explored. Also, how do you recruit mentors and match them with students?

    Hello Jeanne, Thank you for watching our video and commenting. Our students have pursued many areas after degree; corporate, MS programs in Engineering and STEM education, PhD programs in Geoscience and Chemistry, and pre-professional programs such as dentistry and medicine. We've worked with students from community college through their application to graduate school. The ability to explore different paths and talk to professionals from all across the career continuum has helped many decide which route fits them best at graduation. We recruit faculty mentors from within the campus of each program (and community partners surrounding the campus). Faculty mentors manage the research project of the student so they must be well versed in research and have experience working with undergraduate students, as well as a passion for mentoring.

    Captures the excitement of an LSAMP conference and what it means to our INLSAMP Scholars!

    Thank you for creating such a compelling video. Like Hannah and Alexander, I also enjoyed following one scholar through the video and hearing how meaningful the experience was for her and those who will follow in her footsteps. I was impressed by Ms.Thompson's emphasis on the support that she felt and the importance of the community connections. Once they graduate, do the scholars have the ability to maintain a connection to the IN LSAMP community? For example, does the program facilitate an alumni network?

    Hi Sasha, Thank you for watching the video and sharing your feedback. Our IN LSAMP scholars build a connection with our IN LSAMP community and the broader LSAMP alliance. We established a LinkedIn group where the scholars join during their research experience. The alumni remain in the group after graduation and we are fortunate to have them share back stories of career successes, provide support for students with questions about the journey, and sharing job opportunities with students. It has been a great network where the alumni are able to give back and inspire students. The LSAMP alumni have been invited to the social hours we hold where scholars can talk about a variety of topics. Lately it has been the interest in virtual interviewing. We were fortunate to have several who had been through Zoom interviews and able to provide advice.

    Thank you for visiting and watching our video. Our NSF project, IN LSAMP (Indiana STEM Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation). Our mission is to increase the quality and quantity of students from underrepresented minority populations receiving BS degrees in STEM. To accomplish this, 1) we promote student success by engaging students early in their academic career with undergraduate research, 2) build a community of faculty mentors at our campuses, 3) design professional development activities for students, and 4) support academic persistence through graduation with our network of peer mentors and tutors.

    Our focus – strengthening academic prep; increasing engagement with STEM discipline; retaining students in STEM majors; transitioning students from 2 to 4-year institutions and preparing students to be STEM professionals ready for either graduate program or career.

    For researchers and educators: What ways are you evaluating the success of underrepresented minorities in your STEM classrooms and laboratories? Can you share any training or professional development you received on supporting minority faculty and students in STEM (either campus or in STEM community)? 

    For administrators and support staff: What are some programs or activities you have used to build a community of support for underrepresented minority students and faculty in STEM at your campus?

    Have a wonderful Friday enjoying all the videos in the showcase!

    Empowering video for young women. As a graduate student I was on the external evaluation team for LSAMP program at Oklahoma State University. It was great hearing a students perspective of another LSAMP program.
