McEachin announces grant from the National Science Foundation to Virginia State University

Donald McEachinCongressman A. Donald McEachin (VA-04) announced a National Science Foundation grant of $1,373,217 to Virginia State University for programs for increased student success in introductory biology, including a mentoring program, a rigorous evaluation procedure and working on ways to integrate improvements in the course to other STEM classes.

“All too often in a classroom we don’t really know what works and what helps students succeed,” said McEachin. “This grant will allow a data, research driven overlay onto a class to evaluate the best methodology for student success. We can then use those results in other courses and other institutions and ensure more students have the tools and support to succeed.”
