will be three workshops - one per year in 2002, 2003 and 2004. We
will thenconvene a symposium in 2005 to review the effectiveness
of the program developed during the workshops. The symposium will
consider not only whether we had been successful in attracting minority
student to the SEA program but also whether the program appeared
to be successful in encouraging students to make careers in ocean
sciences. It would also be charged with developing an action plan
to continue the program development.
Everyone who had participated
in a workshop would be invited to attend the symposium, as would
minority students who had been through a SEA program. Members of
the broader Woods Hole scientific community would also be invited.
Their input would be particularly valuable when considering whether
the program was successful in encouraging student to pursue careers
in ocean sciences.
