Many factors influence the choice of a major or career, but some students do not consider STEM options because of a perceived inability to master STEM skills. This NSF IUSE:EHR grant titled Building Opportunities for STEM Success (BOSS), aims to increase the effectiveness of STEM study skills for undergraduate students at Florida State College at Jacksonville (FSCJ). BOSS will create and embed new study skills tutorials in six key STEM courses to improve interest and learning gains for 360 students in College Algebra, Earth & Space Science, Hardware Configuration (IT), Life in its Biological Environment, Introduction to General Chemistry, and Introduction to Engineering. BOSS brings together a team of interdisciplinary STEM faculty members who will be pioneers at our college as they form this professional learning collaborative dedicated to teaching study skills to their STEM students to encourage retention, completion and success. These high impact study skills practices will begin to transform the STEM faculty and student experience at FSCJ. Partners include Northeast Florida STEM Hub, Florida Department of Education, and the JAXUSA Earn Up initiative who will support dissemination. FSCJ's Department of Organizational Development and School of STEM will provide assistance with development of study skill tutorials.
