Planting the Seeds of Diversity to Reap a Harvest of Scientists

Friday, April 11, 2014 from 12:15 to 2:15 p.m. in Salomon Hall

AFFIRM Workshop – Open to Faculty and Staff

Presented by:
Dr. Maria Elena Zavala, Cal State University, Northridge; Professor, Biology

Recent studies on the state of higher education in the USA indicate that not all ethnic groups are equally represented. While women in general are more likely to attend college they are still underrepresented in STEM. Many ethnic minorities are not only underrepresented in college but also in STEM. We can prepare students to become the next generation of innovative leaders and ultimately leave a vibrant forward looking inclusive academy. By acting locally we can develop programs that support students and faculty from diverse backgrounds to achieve their professional goals. There will be a focus on interventions that “worked” for local students and nationally for faculty, with exercises and case studies for participants to complete.
