Title: Gender, and other variables, affecting graduation outcomes and the future of science. Male vs. female students 1995-2003 Rochester Institute of Technology’s College of Science
Author: Mahrt-Washington, Catherine
Abstract: This thesis focuses on the impact of retention of undergraduate students on the future of science. If there are insufficient numbers of science students pursuing and succeeding in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics education and careers, it has been argued that the United States will lose its innovative, competitive, and technological edge. The focus is on the challenges of retaining students, both male and female, in the sciences at Rochester Institute of Technology from 1995-2003. This thesis will describe and analyze existing data in an effort to develop a case specific understanding of retention metrics, student retention dynamics, and consideration of possible strategies.
