Convener: Kelsey Speer, CTL Graduate Fellow, Cell & Molecular Biology and Mitra Eghbal, CTL Graduate Fellow, Biology
Location: BRB 253
Summary: As STEM educators, how do we attract and maintain undergraduate diversity? We will discuss issues of implicit bias, equitable resource accessibility, student interactions, and course design. In this workshop, the term “diversity” is broadly defined, encompassing the full spectrum of race, gender, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic identities. Lunch will be provided! Participation is limited to 30 people. Priority will be given to STEM grad students. Postdocs, faculty, staff, and undergrads are welcome if there is enough space. Contact Kelsey Speer and/or Mitra Eghbal by Friday, April 29, if you want to attend. (Special thanks to Dr. Arnaldo Diaz, Dr. Jan Burkhardt, & Ms. Aliza Mansolino for invaluable help in coordination & planning.)
All graduate students are welcome. This event grows out of concerns in the CAMB and Biology departments and so may be most useful to students in related fields.
Counts toward the CTL Teaching Certificate.
