What we Post on our Sites
The focus of our website is to promote education and career opportunities in
the STEM fields to students, with an emphasis on reaching members of
underrepresented groups. The types of content we post includes program
information, news items, profiles, events/conferences, fellowship opportunities and
resource links. We emphasize STEM education programs which offer stipends, fellowships, or similar paid opportunities for students (for example, NSF, NIH, NASA, or NOAA funded programs). We post programs, events and news items related
to students, educators, faculty and administrators at the K-12 through Post
If your program, news item, or event is related to a funded program in STEM,
and/or has a diversity focus, then it is likely that we can post your
information to our site and you can use our program form
to post your program.
Unfortunately, we often have more requests for links on our site than we can currently accommodate. We regret that we are unable to post links to general university departments, to resources that are too narrow in focus or too institution-specific for our national audience, to comprehensive university and college search directories, or to other web resources that lack a STEM or diversity focus.
We post profiles of students (at both the undergraduate and graduate level), postdocs, faculty, scientists and administrators in the STEM fields. We are particularly interested in profiles with a diversity focus -- profiles highlighting students from underrepresented groups and faculty/admin leaders who support diversity in the STEM.
Profiles include pictures and biographical text, and note an individual's level of study, institution affiliation, program affiliation, resume, and links to a personal website and/or video etc. Individuals may use their pathways to science profile as platform to promote themselves professionally on the Internet. Additionally, IBP has found that online profiles are helpful for prospective students to envision themselves pursuing an education or career in STEM. Profiles highlighting STEM diversity leaders also provide an opportunity for faculty members to become familiar with successful STEM mentors around the country, and for students to identify potential mentors.
Individuals submit profile information using IBP's profile form
. All profile form submissions are reviewed by IBP staff and posted within two weeks. At any time an individual may request to have their profile removed from pathwaystoscience.org by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
News & Events
For news items, we post links to stories, articles and press releases highlighting STEM diversity successes. News items may include noteworthy items at the national, state, institution, program or individual level. We typically do not post program application sessions or deadlines as news items or events. Click here to post news items.
For events, we post links to STEM and diversity related conferences, symposia, workshops, annual meetings, institutes, and career exploration events. Posted events generally need to be of interest to our targeted audience at the national, regional or programmatic level. We welcome event submissions for virtual events such as webinars! Regretfully, however, we are unable to post links that are too geographically limited in scope for our national audience. Click here to post events.
We regret that we are unable to post either event or news items that are too narrow in focus or too institution-specific for our national audience. Priority is given to events and news content with a STEM and/or diversity focus.
For diversity references, we post links to an annotated, discretionary list of peer reviewed research results and significant reports. To submit a diversity reference for posting on pathwaystoscience.org, please send link or PDF of the resource, a full citation, and a description of the resource and why it would be a valuable resource to others working to broaden participation in STEM to Dana Saywell
for review by IBP's Diversity References review panel.
The primary focus of pathwaystoscience.org is content that fits into the content categories of programs, profiles, news, events and diversity references. In instances when we encounter useful websites that support IBP's work to increase diversity in the STEM workforce yet do not fit within the context of our content templates, we post and highlight these URLs as "featured links" in the "Resource Library" on pathwaystoscience.org. Generally the "featured links" that we post highlight initiatives with a STEM and diversity focus that do not fit within another area on our website. We receive more requests for links than we can accommodate while maintaining the targeted scope of pathwaystoscience.org so all link requests are subject to review by IBP staff. If you would like to submit a "featured link" please email email@example.com
with the link and a brief explanation of why it might be valuable to pathwaystocience.org
The focus of our Maine STEM website is to promote science education and career opportunities for students in Maine. In an effort to create a network of resources specifically for Maine students, parents, educators, businesses and policy makers, the content we post on the Maine STEM website is more general and broad in scope than on pathwaystoscience.org. Content posted on the Maine STEM websites includes a broad range of STEM programs, opportunities and events for students of all ages and education levels, as well as news and information about STEM-related research, industry, policy, and collaborations.
