Challenge: STEM and Minorities The New American Dilemma

Dr. Irving Pressley McPhai: America and its businesses need to recruit more minorities in STEM fields.

A study by the National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering, Inc. on U.S. engineering degrees found that African-Americans, American Indians, and Latinos account for 34 percent of the total U.S. population (ages 18 to 24), but earn only 12 percent of all undergraduate degrees in engineering.
