As part of the collaborative, Virginia State University (VSU) will investigate use of self-directed learning interventions in its growing online course offerings, especially STEM and introductory biology courses, and build off the success of its STAR Program, which aims to enhance the performance of minority STEM majors enrolled in general biology courses in preparation for possible careers in allied health fields. VSU, an HBCU founded in 1882, is one of Virginia’s two land-grant institutions and is located in the village of Ettrick. With a current student population of approximately 4,000, VSU offers 36 undergraduate degree programs, 16 graduate degree programs, two doctoral degree programs, and eight certificate programs.
