The College Art Association. Diversity: Images and Documents of Art and Culture from https://www.collegeart.org/diversity/images

Strayhorn, T. L. (2010). Undergraduate Research Participation and Stem Graduate Degree Aspirations among Students of Color. New Directions for Institutional Research, 2010(148), 85-93. (PDF)

In this report, Strayhorn outlines several statistics that give the reader a thorough look into who pursues careers in STEM-related fields. Strayhorn then moves on to show how undergraduate research opportunities work to retain STEM students through graduate school and into the workforce. This article is helpful because it neatly packages several statistics into an easy-to-read introduction to the problem of retention in science fields.


Association for Theatre in Higher Education

  1. Association for Asian Performance
  2. Black Theatre Association; BTA's Facebook is more active than the BTA website
  3. Latino Focus Group; includes syllabi
  4. Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer Focus Group

These individual focus groups within the Association for Theatre in Higher Education provide valuable perspectives on the state of theatre in academia through the eyes of various minority groups. These would be useful for finding resources or experts.
