Langston's Integrated Network College (LINC) for STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics)

 

Langston’ Integrated Network College (LINC) for STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) was created in 2003 with the support of  2 successive 5-year grants (2003-2008; 2008-2014) from the National Science Foundation(NSF)  totaling over $5 M  as well as the support of Langston University’s  staff and faculty community. LINC  emerged as a training ground and showcase for Langston’s scholars in STEM  disciplines.

LINC Today (2017)

 

The LINC program exceeded its objectives of increasing the number of students who enroll in a STEM major by 15%,  increasing the number of LU STEM graduates by 15%, and increasing the number of students who enroll in STEM graduate programs by 25 %. Actual results were: during LINC, STEM majors increased as follows:1) Biology majors - 49% (avg.  of 85/year to avg. of 127/year);  2) Chemistry majors - 150%, from an average of 10/year to 25/year; and  3) the number of STEM students who entered MS/PhD programs (graduate school ongoing rate) increased by 233% (18 vs. 60) over pre-LINC years. Further, Of 133 program participants, 111 had earned a BS degree by early 2016, and an additional 12 were still in school at LU. Over 70% (81 out of 111) matriculated to an advanced  STEM or professional degree program. Others accepted high level positions in industry. As of early 2016, over half had earned an advanced or professional degree and 13 were still in an advanced degree program.

STEM Students' Accomplishments

.............................................................................................................

 

Langston University’s LINC scholars Attend The National Institute of Science and Beta Kappa Chi Scientific Honor Society's 70th Joint Annual Meeting: Half of the Participants Win Awards. Washington DC.  March 13-17. 2013. Eight of the eleven LINC STEM scholars who submitted abstracts of their research projects for this competitive event had their work accepted for presentation during the conference. LINC’s Education Coordinator, Brittanie Atkinson, also submitted her work in the Graduate category.  Student researchers (and Ms. Atkinson) defended their research projects, presented as oral or poster presentations,  before faculty judges from across the country.  A total of 202 undergraduate abstracts were accepted into competition.  Four of Langston’s eight student presenters won awards.  Ms. Atkinson also won an award in the Graduate category, bringing Langston’s total to five awards.
