要約

This article describes the findings of a study of Project SUPER, an intervention program at Douglass College designed to improve retention rates of undergraduate women in math, science, and engineering. Project SUPER is the component of the Douglass Project that is aimed specifically at lst-year students who demonstrate ability and interest in math, science, or engineering. Students were interviewed and surveyed in their 3rd and 4th years of college to gain their retrospective opinions about the program and to identify factors that differentiated students who persisted in math, science, or engineering majors from those who did not. Although some components of the program were cited as being more effective than others, we found that Project SUPER had a positive impact on the academic lives of the women who participated. Participants were more likely than nonparticipants to major in math, science, or engineering, and they stated that the research and mentoring experiences available to them allowed them to make earlier, more informed academic and career decisions.
