Commitment to Student Success

Faculty and staff are committed to the success of students interested in STEM. We are working to develop internal expertise, through workshops, learning groups, communities of practice, and attendance at external conferences in inclusive pedagogical practices and in an understanding of critical race theory and anti-racist approaches.
