Louis Stokes Regional Center of Excellence for Wholistic Mentoring in STEM (WM STEM Center)
The Louis Stokes Regional Center of Excellence for Wholistic Mentoring in STEM (Louis Stokes WM STEM Center) is dedicated to advancing, curating, and disseminating evidence-based mentoring practices that consider diversity, equity, and inclusion as integral elements of the mentor-protégé experience. The WM STEM Center brings together academic, DoE laboratories and industrial partners from the Rockies and Southwest states. Focal areas of our research include bridge to the baccalaureate, internship, undergraduate research, and PAESMEM programs.
Welcome to the Louis Stokes Wholistic Mentoring Center of Excellence (WM STEM), where we have gathered a wide range of resources for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) mentoring of underrepresented minorities (URMs). Our goal is to provide mentors and mentees with information, tools, and articles that offer perspectives on the effects and outcomes of mentoring underrepresented students at the community college, four-year university, and graduate levels. These resources were carefully curated from a variety of sources, including the National Science Foundation (NSF), National Institutes of Health (NIH), Center for the Improvement of Mentored Experiences in Research (CIMER), and other organizations focused on STEM education and diversity. By leveraging these resources, we hope to support the success of URM students in STEM and encourage more effective and wholistic mentoring practices across all levels of education.
