Abstract

The purpose of this chapter is to develop a theoretical framework for recruiting underrepresented and racially minoritized (URM) STEM students in order to increase the number of URM STEM teachers. Three possible sources (high schools, community colleges, and four-year institutions) from which to recruit potential URM STEM teachers will be discussed, considering some of the advantages and disadvantages of each. Various career theories will be presented in terms of their applicability to URM STEM teachers. Relevant data and findings from studies that investigated URM students majoring in STEM and STEM teaching will be highlighted. Finally, a recruitment framework that integrates all ideas explored—sources of potential URM STEM teachers, career theory, and data and research on URM students in STEM and STEM teaching—as a means for increasing the number of URM STEM teachers will be proposed.
