Web talk, Structural racism, institutional transformation, and diversifying the STEM faculty (SABER)
The small number of Black, Latinx/a/o, and Native American faculty in STEM has been increasingly identified as cause for concern, and multiple interventions have been proposed and implemented to increase representation. Decades of research suggest that interventions must go beyond focusing on "fixing" minoritized scientists, instead turning our attention to how campuses and STEM disciplines perpetuate racism and inequality.
This topic-based teaching and learning community meets throughout the academic year. We work as teams to optimize application exercises, readiness assurance tests, peer evaluation, and other aspects of course design, and also invite speakers to facilitate discussions of TBL theory, research and classroom application.
