President Hrabowski talks about STEM education on MSNBC

President Freeman Hrabowski appeared May 11 on the MSNBC program “Andrea Mitchell Reports” to talk about STEM education.

Hrabowski pointed out that the United States is behind many other countries in the percentage of people who earn STEM degrees. “We need to double the number of people graduating with majors in science and engineering,” he said. He also talked about teacher training and the need to engage students at all levels in STEM subjects.

Mitchell asked about the preparation of students as they begin their studies at UMBC. “Quite frankly, my students are phenomenal,” he said.
