AERA (April 13 to 17) time is here again. We will have 17 presentations this year at the conference that use CIRP data or are HERI sponsored studies. Of these presentations, half are studies that are HERI sponsored and half are from researchers granted access to CIRP data through our data access proposal process. Topic wise, 5 of the presentations are on issues of diversity, 4 on STEM issues, 2 on retention, and 1 each on degree aspirations, methods, student athletes, veteran students, civic engagement, and faculty. In addition, HERI Director Dr. Sylvia Hurtado is also scheduled to speak in a special Presidential Session.
Highlights among these sessions is a symposium on STEM this Friday in which the HERI BEST Research Team will present 3 papers, 1 on science identity, 1 on graduate students, and 1 on introductory STEM courses.
