Broader Impacts

The broader impacts of the City Tech I3 Incubator have implications for teaching, research, and workforce development. Using the STEM laboratory as a tool for institutional transformation is a cross-cutting innovation that should provide other institutions, including MSIs and other under-resourced public institutions that serve underrepresented populations, with a model for renewing and con­temporizing STEM programs. The Case Study method featured in the creation of interdisciplinary STEM lab curricula across departments is scalable and adaptable to a wide variety of institutional settings. City Tech has a constellation of peer institutions with which we work through the NSF MRI program, the PKAL Interdisciplinary Initiative, the CUNY Black Male Initiative, and peer NSF ADVANCE institutions for whom our I3 Incubator may provide inspiration.
