Description

The United States has radically changed from an industrial society to one driven by automation. The labor and manufacturing and manufacturing sectors elevated many minorities to the middle class with workforce opportunities changing faster than the nation’s educational framework can adapt. These communities have been historically impacted by these major shifts in education and economic development.

This text seeks to outline academic challenges and offer possible solutions, faced by underrepresented minorities seeking access to opportunities in the world’s digital economy. In addition, developing institutional leadership, cultivating organizational culture, and building capacity to sustain a vibrant STEM Culture at HBCU’s and Minority Serving Institutions. This work will surely add to the growing literature of STEM capacity building research and significantly impact how HBCU’s and MSI’s recruit and retain, not only students, but executive leadership and faculty.
