umbc on “60 minutes”

We met a man with an unusual name you’ve probably never heard of, but his message about education and America’s future is something we thought you should know.

Freeman Hrabowski says the United States is not producing enough scientists and engineers – professions critical to creating more jobs.

Hrabowski is president of the University of Maryland Baltimore County. UMBC, as it’s called, was once known primarily as a commuter school. Today, this mid-sized state university has earned a reputation as one of the most innovative schools in the country. Especially when it comes to getting students into math and science and keeping them there.

So begins a segment on “60 Minutes” that follows UMBC President Freeman Hrabowski and Meyerhoff students and alumni to explain the UMBC approach to graduating more students, especially minorities, in STEM fields.

See the full segment here.
