Broadening Participation in STEM Seminar Series

The Broadening Participation in STEM Seminar Series (2023-2024 academic year) highlights research focusing on fostering equity, inclusion, full access, and diversity in STEM disciplines. This seminar series is a partnership between the STEM DEI Taskforce and STEM departments, allowing seminars to be held during regularly scheduled departmental seminars and colloquia . The purpose of this seminar series is to provide STEM faculty, instructors, and graduate students with evidence-based support in fostering inclusive and equitable STEM instruction at ISU. Best efforts are made to align seminar topics so they are relevant to the partnering unit, although all talks will be open to the entire campus community This series advances ISU by demonstrating our commitment to EDIA and achieving full representation in STEM disciplines, which are often overlooked in conventional DEI efforts, despite STEM fields having the most substantial underrepresentation of all domains.
