Increasing Minority Participation in University STEM programs, Milton Dean Slaughter
A proposed university program could increase the number of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) degrees earned by women and minorities in the United States.


Milton D. Slaughter is Professor of Physics Emeritus and chair and Department Head Emeritus of the University of New Orleans, USA; and an affiliate visiting professor of physics at Florida International University, USA.

Prof Slaughter argues that The United States is not doing enough to address the imminent shortage of qualified STEM
personnel. He argues that a complex problem like underrepresentation in STEM needs the dedication of the entire
academic community.

His solution is to establish a University Organizational Unit Program (UOUP). The UOUP projects and interventions are designed to identify, attract, motivate and retain women and minority students.
