Expanding STEM Talent study is a longitudinal mixed mode web/mail survey of students at UW Colleges, Madison College and Milwaukee Area Technical College. The goal of this study is to investigate factors associated with student transfer from 2-year to 4-year institutions in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields of study. Results from this research will inform 2- and 4-year institutions about STEM learning experiences, program features, and educational practices that matter the most in charting a successful STEM transfer pathway. Students will be surveyed as freshmen and then again on their 2nd and 4th year in college.
