Virtual Conference: Breaking Barriers in STEM Education – Dec 16 & 17

Posted by Cheyney University on December 14, 2021

Cheyney University developed the Breaking Barriers series to educate and promote diversity, equity, and inclusion across an academic landscape. The Breaking Barriers Conference, with the help of Program Directors from NSF, will do so with an emphasis on racial equity and securing authentic network partnerships that can begin eliminating the systemic racism barriers that have prevented the career advancement and expansion of scholarly pursuits in STEM for faculty of color.

At the virtual conference, you can expect information on the communication of research ideas, explanation and review of proposals, discussion on barriers faced and broken by faculty of color in the sponsored programs landscape, development of a network that brings together successfully funded faculty with aspiring grant seekers to create partnerships and foster collaboration, and exposure of institutional and community transformation models that can be shared through a research infrastructure.

Dates and Times: December 16 & 17, 12:00-5:00 PM
