Description/Abstract

STEM is considered to be a key factor to determine the global competitiveness of a nation; therefore, education in STEM has become a national priority since 2012. However, the high attrition rate makes it hard to achieve the goals to produce required qualified scientists and engineers. Involving undergraduate students in research can possibly help retain more students in STEM. Setting up proper goals for undergraduate research and its implementation is critical for retention. An example of an undergraduate research program at Jacksonville University is going to be presented.
