Being Human in STEM

Ongoing projects and future projects

In Spring 2017, the Being Human in STEM group continued to develop the projects initiated in the Fall semester as well as started a number of new initiatives, including:

  • Analyzing the results of the Being Human in STEM climate survey and working on a future publication to present the survey results
  • Disseminate the Being Human in STEM initiative to other potential institutions via a joint workshop with the Amherst College group at the conference Understanding Interventions that Broaden Participation in Science Careers  
  • As part of the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) Faculty Workshop series, designed and implemented a workshop for faculty to learn directly from students in STEM how to make their classes more inclusive (the workshop was held on May 2nd, with the title: What Yale Students Want You to Know about Being Human in STEM
  • Developing material to help STEM students to succeed at Yale and find the additional help or advice they may need (e.g. list of resources, mentoring opportunities, faculty in STEM advising)
