Inclusive STEM Teaching Fellow Program Application Deadline
The Inclusive STEM Teaching Fellows program is designed to advance the awareness, self-efficacy, and ability of STEM instructors to cultivate inclusive learning environments for all their students and to develop themselves as reflective, inclusive practitioners.
The institute will cover the following themes designed to help instructors construct classroom environments that support the complexities that contribute to student persistence:
- Social identity and its impact on learning
- Power, positionality, and privilege
- Inclusive course design
- Interruption of oppression and microaggressions
- Evidence-based teaching
Participants will enroll in the self-paced Inclusive STEM Teaching Project online course (March 6 – April 28) and culminate the experience with an in-person institute designed for deep engagement around diversity, equity, and inclusion in learning and teaching, instructor identity and authority, student identities and experiences, creating inclusive courses, and fostering an inclusive classroom climate. The institute will be held from 9 am – 2 pm on May 10 and 11, 2023, at an on-campus venue.

Selected participants will receive $1000 in funds to be used for professional activities related to DEI initiatives.
