Developing a New Faculty Model to Improve Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

This session challenged the traditional notions of tenure, department culture, and expectations for faculty in undergraduate STEM education. The featured keynote was followed by a concurrent session with three speakers focused on systemic issues related to diversity, equity, and inclusion at the faculty level. Conversations included examining equity within faculty recruitment and tenure systems, creating cultural change within STEM departments, and confronting common challenges encountered by faculty at Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) and Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).
