  • Abstract:
    The aim of the project is to help students from underrepresented groups connect the highly‐visible construction, operations, and maintenance activities in their community surrounding the new rail corridor to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) topics. With a tangible connection to real‐world applications of these subjects, it is hoped that more of these students will pursue careers in engineering, railroads or construction industry, growing the next generation of industry professionals.

    The "Grow Our Own" Minority STEM Initiative is led by Hanson Professional Services, a civil engineering consulting firm headquartered in Springfield. Hanson is joined by the City of Springfield, Sangamon County, and the Illinois Department of Transportation in administering the initiative. Each group has pledged financial support to multiple programs including outreach to minorities through the NURail Center.
