To empower successful and authentic STEM instruction and research, future faculty members must be able to compete for diverse and expansive funding. This session focuses on writing broadening participation and education plans for National Science Foundation (NSF) and National Institutes of Health (NIH) grants, including the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP), and provides an overview on how STEM Faculty members...

... and the David T. Kearn Center's Grants Lab leverage diverse and innovative teaching practices to help faculty and graduate students craft successful and impactful broadening participation plans.

*CIRTL Cast Series: April: Creating an Inclusive STEM Teaching Environment*
Through a unique partnership with pre-college students in the University's Upward Bound Programs, Kearns-CIRTL Graduate Fellows are provided opportunities to teach and learn from diverse students while in turn providing expanded exposure to STEM to these traditionally scientifically underserved students. This series examines this partnership and its impact on learning through diversity, through the lens of classroom teaching. This series will explore the Kearns-CIRTL Graduate Fellows' implementation of diverse teaching strategies for first generation college, low-income and/or minority students. Fellows worked with Kearns Center staff and STEM faculty to design appropriate curricula and assist in STEM content development and delivery effectively in classrooms with a widely diverse student population. Fellows will review their experiences on this project working with both pre-college and college populations, providing important insight on the trajectories of student learning and their development from high school to college level learners. Additionally, this series will outline ways future and current faculty members can leverage these authentic teaching practices for broadening participation in STEM when seeking funding opportunities, especially through the NSF. This series is organized by University of Rochester and CIRTL.
