3:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.


A reception with light refreshments will follow.

Professor Tracy Johnson shares approaches being taken at the University of California, Los Angeles to reverse the gaps in STEM enrollment and persistence, not only by implementing “interventions” that support student success, but also by examining closely the type of learning environments we are creating for students. The results suggest that it is time to move beyond discussions of student “diversity” to creating a culture of inclusion for students in the sciences.  

Lecture will then be followed by a panel discussion “Stasis and Change: Integrative Approaches to Catalyzing and Inclusive STEM Culture” led by Professor Tyrone Hayes and featuring Professors Tracy Johnson and Paul Barber.
