RÉSUMÉ

This study examines the national trend and profile of science and engineering (S&E) doctorates who attended community colleges by using the NSF Doctorate Records File. Specifically, the trends of community college attendance by the S&E doctorates over the past three decades and the characteristics of the community colleges of their attendance are examined. Findings suggest that community colleges play a critical role in the educational pathways of women and minority S&E doctorates.
