This past Tuesday, members of our Outreach and Resource coordination group held a "Post-Stem Dinner" on campus. In a closed, intimate setting, we spoke to fellow Amherst students about their experiences studying STEM at the College--and, more importantly still, about their decision to ultimately choose other fields of study instead. We are particularly aware that we have a lot to learn about improving the STEM experience from students who are no longer engaged with STEM at Amherst.
The resulting conversation was incredibly illuminating, and we can't wait to share our insights with you soon. In the meantime, we've posted some of the photographs of some post-STEM students who shared their stories with us.
