The project builds on UTSA's and the NSF's dedication to increasing diversity in the STEM workforce by increasing the number of undergraduate underrepresented minorities who graduate from the UTSA Colleges of Engineering and Sciences. Graduate assistants will support the development, implementation, and analysis of STEM lessons that focus on academic literacy practices. The overall goal is to promote curricular change that focuses on the intersection of academic literacy and content competencies to improve student learning and success.
