Educators from around the country are at the University of Houston today. The goal is to come up with ways UH and other universities can recruit and retain Hispanic students to STEM fields.

To learn more about what they’ll discuss and how they hope to address the issue, Houston Matters talks with Andrew Hamilton, an associate dean for student success at UH’s College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, Frank Fernandez, an assistant professor at UH’s College of Education, and Vanessa Sansone, an assistant professor of higher education at the University of Texas at San Antonio.
