6th annual STEM Research Symposium

About the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (S.T.E.M.) Research Symposium

The purpose of the Science Technology Engineering and Math (S.T.E.M.) committee is to promote the development of a S.T.E.M. learning community, in which students can thrive, succeed, and graduate in the S.T.E.M. disciplines.

The community is based on a strengthened collaboration between S.T.E.M. faculty, advisors, students, and departments. It is implemented through the development of proven initiatives and activities such as mentorships, academic and research support, social networking, administrative support, and partnerships with community colleges and other units of interest.

The overall objective is to attract and retain qualified students in the S.T.E.M. majors, especially from underrepresented groups, and address the local and national shortage in the S.T.E.M. fields.

The goals of the S.T.E.M. initiatives are:

  • to promote the development of community of active learners by creating an environment that allows students, faculty and staff to interact through involvement in various multidisciplinary activities and social events.
  • to develop and implement strategies aimed at encouraging and facilitating the transfer of S.T.E.M. students from neighboring community colleges to Barry University.
  • to promote involvement in research within S.T.E.M. disciplines and to support participation and presentations at regional and national scientific meetings or competitions.

Every spring, S.T.E.M. students and faculty are invited to showcase their research at the Annual Barry S.T.E.M. Research Symposium. This research symposium is aimed at engaging the local scientific community in learning about ongoing discoveries within S.T.E.M. disciplines (biology, chemistry, physics, psychology, mathematics, and computer and health sciences). The event is sponsored by the Departments of Biology, Mathematics & Computer Science, and Physical Sciences, the School of Professional and Career Education, and private donors.
