Project Quest (Quality Undergraduate Expanded Science Training) at Long Island University’s Brooklyn Campus will directly address the shortage of disadvantaged minorities in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields by providing a comprehensive range of services and activities that will support and strengthen the skills and academic experiences of twenty minority students, in addition to creating a resource center and informational Website for other STEM students at this institution and for the public at large. The first objective of Project Quest will be to create a heuristic educational science program for undergraduates that will optimize their skills in the life sciences and assist them in finding careers in the STEM fields, and the second will be to create a Quest Center which will serve as a conceptual framework for a community of undergraduate science learners and serve as a resource for all students who are interested in STEM fields and health professions.
