The MAKERS project is a Consortium consisting of: 1) Six implementation sites located in Alabama: Tuskegee University (TU), Alabama A&M University (AAMU), Auburn University (AU), Auburn University Montgomery (AUM), Lawson State Community College (LSCC), Southern Union State Community College (SUSCC); and, 2) A knowledge generation site: Oakland University (OU) located in Michigan. Since the Fall of 2016, Consortium partners have worked collaboratively to implement interventions designed to address the following goals:

Goal 1 [Student Persistence in STEM Undergraduate Studies]: To increase the retention and graduation rate of low-income, academically talented STEM undergraduate students. 

Goal 2 [Student Preparation for the STEM Workforce and Graduate Studies]: To prepare target students with the STEM academic foundation, STEM professional skills and STEM experiences to enter the STEM workforce or graduate school in STEM disciplines.

Goal 3 [Knowledge Generation]: To investigate the S-STEM MAKERS model’s impact on recruitment, retention, success and graduation of target students from a social science research perspective.

MAKERS interventions operate synergistically to meet the goals of the MAKERS program. These interventions are all co-curricular. They are designed with the aim of fostering STEM knowledge, research skills, professional skills, and experiences in undergraduate students at MAKERS implementation sites.
