STEM Push Network

CHICAGO STEM PATHWAYS COOPERATIVE MEMBER PROFILE

With a diverse group of partners, the STEM PUSH Network is working to create systemic change in the postsecondary admissions process by reinventing the relationship between pre-college STEM programs and higher education admissions offices. STEM PUSH is conducting the first-ever large, cross-program research study of the impact of pre-college STEM program (PCSP) experiences on student enrollment and student persistence in STEM in post-secondary education.

The STEM PUSH Network supports pre-college STEM programs in strengthening how they serve Black, Latinx, and Indigenous students and work with admissions offices to pioneer a new way for pre-college programs to carry weight in admissions processes. Through research and collaboration, STEM PUSH will leverage the power of pre-college STEM programs and the ecosystems in which they operate to establish pathways for Black, Latinx, and Indigenous students into post-secondary STEM studies.
