Reading Group for Natural Science Faculty – Fall 2016

Posted on May 26, 2016 | Filed under General News

The associate provost would like to invite interested natural science faculty to participate in a reading group focused on enhancing student success in the sciences. A common national theme over the past few years has been a call to increase the number of graduates in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields and to enhance the scientific literacy of students in other disciplines. Achieving these types of goals will require us to harness the potential of all students, forcing us to identify and acknowledge the barriers encountered by students from traditionally underrepresented groups. In an effort to advance this work on campus, participants will read and discuss recent scholarship centered on current and emerging evidence-based teaching practices that promote diversity and equity in the sciences.
