Seminar Series: Addressing Inequities in STEM Education

To better understand changes that need to be made to STEM learning environments, The Ohio State University is launching a new seminar series, Our Inclusive Path Forward: Addressing Inequities in STEM Education.

The six-part series features lectures by national leaders in recruiting, retaining and graduating a diverse population of STEM students in science, technology, engineering, math and medicine. The goal is to provide opportunities for faculty, staff and students to learn about best practices and ultimately make Ohio State’s STEM programs more equitable and inclusive. While some events have a disciplinary focus, all attendees will benefit from the perspectives and practices shared.

The series kicks off March 3 and wraps up April 14. All events are free and open to the public. Learn more and register here.


TOMORROW, March 10, at 6pm there will be a seminar (“That None Shall Perish”) by Kelly Mack, the national leader of Project Kaleidoscope, a STEM education national program with excellence in active-learning models. Register here.
