New University of Arizona Program Geared to Help Veterans Succeed in STEM Fields

July 09, 2019

A new program to support veterans studying in a STEM field is launching at the University of Arizona. Michael Marty, UA assistant professor of chemistry, started researching veterans participation in STEM fields after retired Lt. Col. James Rohrbough joined Marty's lab as a staff scientist. Marty found that graduation rates and persistence in STEM were lower in veterans than in the overall student population.
