African American Students Underrepresented in STEM Majors 
A recent study by Georgetown University's Center for Education and the Workforce shows that African American students enroll at a higher rate in majors that will yield lower paying jobs, and enroll at lower rates in STEM fields. Students at UT say part of the problem is representation, but others wonder if the issue isn't enrollment rates, but rather how different jobs are valued.
