Making Strides is a free, quarterly (April, July, October, and January) research newsletter published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Directorate for Education and Human Resources Program. Its purpose is to share information about minority graduate education in the fields of science, mathematics, and engineering. It is available in print and electronic format. Inquiries, information related to AGEP, and all correspondence should be sent to the editor. 


Each issue features a profile on an institution that received an NSF Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP) award.  This month we are pleased to feature an article highlighting the AGEP program at the University of Puerto Rico by Brad Weiner.  Dr. Mary Louise Soffa, a Computer Science Professor at the University of Pittsburgh, took the time to chat with us this month about her experiences as a professor and mentor.

Dr. Shirley Malcom contributes the lead article in this issue.  Her paper is based upon presentations she made at our Atlanta Workshop 2000 in February and at a special symposium on human resources held during the American Chemical Society Meeting in San Francisco, March 2000.

Dr. Barbara Lovitts, American Institutes for Research, shares a short piece from her book (in press) Leaving the Ivory Tower:  The Causes and Consequences of Departure from Doctoral Study.
