EEB Thursday Seminar: Approaches to diversifying who does Ecology & Evolution: from undergraduate to faculty

Corey Welch, Director, STEM Scholars Program, Iowa State University
Thursday, February 20, 2020
4:00-5:00 PM
1060 Biological Sciences Building Map
There is a growing body of literature demonstrating the barriers and solutions to improve the successful selection, retention, and development of underrepresented (UR = low income, minority, and first generation) students in ecology and evolutionary biology & STEM fields in general. A model undergraduate training program will be presented that focuses on a growth mindset over traditional skim programs. This will be followed by recommendations for DEI around graduate school selection & training, and the last section of the talk will address on-going approaches to hiring diverse faculty, retention, and ways to establish DEI receipts for all populations.
