Call for Proposals: AAC&U Virtual Conference on Transforming STEM Higher Education – Jul 12

Posted by American Association of Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) on June 22, 2021

2021 Virtual Conference on Transforming STEM Higher Education – Nothing Stays the Same: Reflecting on, Reckoning with & Re-Engineering Undergraduate STEM Education, November 4-6, 2021

Are you the change you wish to see? Call for Proposals: Due July 12, 2021

Achieving equity, quality, and social change within undergraduate STEM education is critical to fostering discovery and innovation in STEM. However, real innovation can only be accomplished when we have diverse and competitively-trained scientists and engineers contributing at every level to our nation’s STEM enterprise. Making this a reality requires that we address oppressive cultural norms in our disciplines and chart a daring path toward re-engineering the ways in which we teach, lead, and support all STEM students and faculty.

The AAC&U Virtual Conference on Transforming STEM Higher Education uses its convening power and mission-level commitment to quality and inclusive excellence to advance undergraduate STEM education reform. By foregrounding diverse disciplines, perspectives, worldviews, voices, needs, and desires—especially of those who have been historically marginalized from STEM—this conference gives rise to a deeper understanding of institutional levers of reform and outlines a national agenda for manipulating those levers to drive discovery, innovation, and social change in STEM higher education. With our attendees, we give voice, not just sound; demonstration, not just intent; and purpose, not just a plan for co-creating reform strategies that can accelerate the reform of undergraduate STEM education practice, research, and policy in ways that advantage all and disadvantage none.

AAC&U and its Project Kaleidoscope (PKAL) invite proposals for sessions that examine the entire range of contemporary challenges to—and opportunities for—STEM higher education reform. All sessions will be delivered virtually, and session presenters will be supported by a team of trained technical producers, moderators, and staff to co-create the most engaging attendee experience possible.
