Jeremy Gernand, Penn State assistant professor of environmental health and safety engineering in the John and Willie Leone Family Department of Energy and Mineral Engineering, recently received a Gladys Snyder Education Grant from the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences to develop a computer-based simulator to give undergraduate engineering students experience with the risk-related implications of system design decisions.

New research shows promise for success of underrepresented scholars in STEM

To date, the Millennium Scholars Program at Penn State has graduated two classes

With the goal of preparing scholars from underrepresented groups to succeed in graduate and professional programs, Penn State, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) and the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) partnered to develop undergraduate programs aimed at increasing retention and academic performance of historically racially underrepresented undergraduates in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.
