2. The National Science Foundation defines underrepresented minorities as students who self-identify as: Black or African American, Alaska Native, Native American, Latino or Hispanic American, and Native Hawaiian or other Native Pacific Islander.

 

3. STEM = science, technology, engineering, and math fields.

 

4.  Baseline figures are calculated from Year Four of Phase One, covering academic year 2010-11.
