The INCLUDES CMDS Project focuses on researching mentoring strategies used to address recruitment and retention concerns with women and ethnic minority populations, specifically for African Americans and Latinas pursuing doctoral degrees in STEM. Data was collected from in-person interviews to understand the mechanisms that non-traditional mentoring programs, like McKnight, use in order to support minority students. The McKnight Doctoral Fellowship Program was one of three programs that will be used to collect data for this project. The other two programs are the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) and the National GEM Consortium.
