Meeting Theme: Transforming Cultures and Affirming Resilience in STEM - Our focus is on transforming the culture within STEM classrooms to better support the resilience of all students with specific attention to students who have been historically excluded due to race, ethnicity, gender, and other factors. The focus of this year’s meeting is strengths-based. We want to emphasize positive productive actions that instructors can take to recognize the innate resilience of all students and help students to draw upon their skills and backgrounds to succeed.
