Call for Submissions: Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Social Justice in STEMM Series

Posted by Accelerating Systemic Change Network (ASCN) on March 29, 2022

The Accelerating Systemic Change Network (ASCN) is now accepting submissions for its Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Social Justice (DEIJ) in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine (STEMM) series. This series, edited by experts in DEIJ and a part of the related ASCN working group, seeks to promote evidence-based strategies to encourage equitable changes in higher education. Topics may include issues relevant to the BT2P audience such as promoting student well-being in the classroom, defining intersectional approaches, outlining inclusive pedagogies, providing examples of integrating meaningful work, or informing the community on what it means to educate the whole student. ASCN especially encourages anyone from marginalized groups to submit perspectives to this public scholarship outlet.

ASCN is a National Science Foundation grant that created a network of individuals and institutions to more quickly advancing undergraduate education programs. ASCN brings together those who are researching systemic change at higher education institutions, with those who are making systemic change happen at their individual institutions. By closing the loop between researchers and change agents, ASCN aims to accelerate change at program and institution levels, and to improve undergraduate education nationally. While initially focused on STEM education, ASCN now has a network of over 600 change leaders across all fields and in one of six working groups on systemic change topics. Anyone interested can join this network for free.
