Blanca E. Rincón and Juanita K. Hinojosa (both Educational Psychology and Higher Education) have co-authored a journal article that appears in the most recent issue of Teachers College Record. The study investigates the ways in which important others shape the initial educational and career aspirations of students of color pursuing STEM pathways. Findings suggest that at every decision-making point (e.g., going to college, selecting a STEM major, and pursuing a STEM career), family members (e.g., parents, siblings, and extended family) directly or indirectly shaped the STEM pathways of students of color.
