Increasing diversity in STEM programs

An idea to attract more diverse students into STEM programs has become an initiative that can drive Indiana’s workforce. Our award-winning Informatics Diversity-Enhanced Workforce (iDEW) program partners with local businesses to provide cutting-edge IT education to a diverse population of Indianapolis high school students.
