FGLSAMP in partnership with the National Science Foundation (NSF), proposes to significantly increase the numbers of STEM baccalaureate, masters and Ph.D. recipients through the implementation of best practices. The FGLSAMP model employs a holistic approach to meet our goal focused upon:
- STEM Recruitment
- STEM Retention
- STEM Graduation
With a significant focus upon student exposure to STEM socialization gained through professional development and academic enhancement activities, FGLSAMP will cultivate greater program execution and output.
The mission of Sigma Epsilon Mu is to provide an environment for students which promotes and embraces the appreciation and integration of science, engineering, and mathematics as an aspect of everyday life. By having forums in which students from the various STEM disciplines, of common interest, can engage in discussions, dissecting, and debating issues revolving around the world of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), a thriving environment of open contemplation can be created. With this, the enhancement and motivation for those within SEM or any student that is inspired by the fellowship and camaraderie developed by those in Sigma Epsilon Mu, an atmosphere is created that is built on the fundamental approach of sharing knowledge and generating excitement that cannot be obtained in a classroom.
- Creating an atmosphere to discuss the relevance and utility of STEM disciplines.
- Developing scientific habits of the mind by exploring and critiquing data using critical thinking and evidence-based reasoning skills.
- Evaluating scientific articles by breaking them down to their component parts, critically examining aspects of a research study, and determining an objective assessment of a study’s validity and significance.
- Formulating a general evaluation of the merits of scholarly articles, and evaluating their applicability.
- Inspiring students to pursue electives in science or science-related opportunities.
- Realization of the importance of collaboration and infusion of all disciplines and their contributions to each other.
- Maintaining a current feed into the recent happenings in the world of STEM.
- Exploring career/professional opportunities in the STEM disciplines with guest speakers or trips to local university, industry, or other locations as dictated by the members of Sigma Epsilon Mu.
