Indiana University at Bloomington, the flagship campus of the state university system, is spending $1.2 million into a project studying why there aren’t more women working in STEM fields (i.e. science, technology, engineering and mathematics).
The project will be led by Adam Maltese, a science education professor at the university and it will take three years to complete. The project’s funding comes from a Tufts University center and the National Science Foundation.
