The Hughes Science Pipeline Project (HSPP) is a multi-faceted program that enhances nearly every aspect of science education at Barnard College. Initiated in 1991, the HSPP has been supported by six generous awards (1991, 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008, and 2012) from the Undergraduate Biological Sciences Education Program of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (www.hhmi.org). The activities sponsored by the HSPP are organized into four program components: Student Development, Faculty Development, Curriculum Development, and Outreach.
