The Howard University Science, Engineering, and Mathematics Program (HUSEM) is a multidisciplinary program involving nine departments in the College of Engineering, Architecture, and Computer Sciences (CEACS) and the College of Arts and Sciences (COAS). The goal of the HUSEM program is to promote academic achievement as well as increase the numbers of underrepresented minorities who receive baccalaureate and graduate degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines.

HUSEM is a National Science Foundation and Semiconductor Research Corporation Education Alliance Funded Initiative


Our Funders

The National Science Foundation (NSF) established the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Undergraduate Program (HBCU-UP) in 2000 to assist HBCUs in their effort to strengthen science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education and research capacity as a means to broaden participation in the nation's STEM workforce. In doing so, Historically Black Colleges and Universities contribute to NSF efforts so that the entire nation's talent can reach their full potential in these fields.

SRC Undergraduate Research Opportunities (URO) is an innovative program co-sponsored by SRC’s Education Alliance and the Intel Foundation that provides undergraduates with valuable research experience and mentoring. Participating undergraduates not only gain confidence in their ability to perform hands-on research, but they also come to appreciate the doors that are opened to those with an advanced degree. The objectives of the SRC URO program are to increase academic retention among undergraduates who express interest in physical science and engineering disciplines, and encourage them to continue their education beyond their four-year degree. The SRC URO program seeks to attract a diverse student population, including women and under-represented minorities. The program also offers workshops and resources to assist students with the graduate school application process.
