Duke University has begun a five-year initiative with a $1.5 million grant from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI). The COMPASS (Collaborating on Mentoring, Persistence, Assessment and Student Success) Program will create a network of collaborative and supporting programs to promote student learning and retention in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) classes. As colleges experience an increasingly diverse population of students majoring in STEM fields, Duke has become a leader in fostering a new and different culture for the development and success of all students.
