A LOOK INTO STEM EDUCATION IN BLACK AMERICA • African Americans Studying STEM: Parsing the Numbers • In 2006, 34% of African-American freshmen intended to major in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. • That number is larger than the percentage of incoming white freshmen--29.5%--who planned to major in science or engineering.

A LOOK INTO STEM EDUCATION IN BLACK AMERICA • African Americans Studying STEM: Parsing the Numbers • Blacks made up 13.3% of freshmen starting college in 2001, but received just 9% of the bachelor’s degrees, and 8.8% of the bachelor's degrees in STEM fields, granted 4 years later. • Blacks represented 5.3% of graduate enrollment in STEM fields in 2001. They earned just 2.5% of all STEM doctorate degrees granted in 2005.

REGIONAL DIRECTIVES • Membership We are comprised of our membership, without the membership NSBE cannot and will not exist. One of the focuses this year will be on providing the membership with what they need to bring out the fullest benefit of membership. • Leadership Strengthening the region requires strengthening of the leadership. We cannot lead without the proper tools and our focus this year will be on developing all aspects of servant leadership. Succession, without this leadership would stop. In order to continuously grow we must provide new views of the leadership, no more that untouchable view. • The Pipeline As we continue to grow, we must remember that our organization is comprised of many types of membership.
