Faculty of Education researcher receives funding to explore the retention of Women of Colour in STEM degree programs (March, 2021)
Dr. Robyn Ruttenberg-Rozen, Assistant Professor, Faculty of Education, and Dr. Tapo Chimbganda, Founder and Executive Director, Future Black Female, recently received funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council and the Ryerson Future Skills Centre to examine retention efforts for Women of Colour in post-secondary science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education.
Three Ontario Tech University students will join Dr. Ruttenberg-Rozen and Dr. Chimbganda in this research: Bachelor of Arts in Educational Studies and Digital Technology student Chantal McKenzie, and Master of Arts in Education students Keisha Deoraj and Katelin Hynes.
The team will explore successful and unsuccessful retention efforts in North American colleges and universities. They also seek to identify how digital tools and technology can be used or developed to leverage support efforts.
