Harrisburg University faculty member Dr. Terrill Frantz, will be hosting a workshop during the Louis Stokes Midwest Regional Center of Excellence (LSMRCE) virtual conference, “Empowering Diverse STEM Innovators,” which is being held online October 22-24, 2021. The “Workshop: Writing Your Statement of Purpose for Grad School” features Northeastern State University’s Prof. of Chemistry, Cammi Valdez, who is featured in the interactive session with students. The 45-minute session is designed for undergraduate students focusing on STEM study and aspiring to enter graduate school.

The annual LSMRCE conference offers students, faculty mentors, educational researchers, and program administrators a platform to exchange knowledge and to cultivate a community of practitioners and scholars in broadening the participation of underrepresented minorities in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). This conference is a part of the month-long celebration of the 30th Anniversary of the Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP), a National Science Foundation program, at Chicago State University.

This is the first year that HU has participated in the conference. The conference targets attendees who are Under-represented minority STEM students (undergrad, grad), Higher education administrators, STEM faculty mentors, STEM program administrators, and University Faculty interested in STEM education research.
