Kenneth Maton Kenneth Maton
Kenneth Maton
Kenneth I. Maton, Professor of Psychology and Affiliate Professor of Public Policy at University of Maryland, Baltimore County is nationally known for his program evaluation expertise, particularly related to science and mathematics intervention programs at the college level that focus on underrepresented student communities. He is the lead evaluator for the widely renown Meyerhoff Scholars Program. The primary emphasis of the Meyerhoff program is to increase the number of underrepresented minority scientists and biomedical researchers. This multifaceted, strengths-based approach to intervention and research has made great strides in increasing the number of African American students who earn PhDs or MD/PhDs and pursue research careers in biomedical science.

During this session, Dr. Maton will discuss a major diversity, equity and inclusion partnership between the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), Pennsylvania State University (PSU), and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC).

This innovative project builds upon lessons from the exemplary UMBC Meyerhoff Scholars Program to develop inclusive high-achieving undergraduate programs at UNC and PSU that promote diversity, equity, and institutional transformation.
