About this episode

An interdisciplinary team at the School of Science and Technology, the School of Education, and the School of Liberal Arts at Georgia Gwinnett College (GGC), are increasing student engagement in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) courses, through embedded research experiences. Their innovative systems-level approach employs bidirectional interactions between students and faculty and High Impact Practices (HIPs) to increase graduation rates and prepare students for their future STEM careers.
