Spring 2021 REC Network Activities, Tentative Dates, and RSVPs!

Happy New Year! On behalf of the 2021 Leadership Team, we would like to thank you for your participation in the REC Network so far. We hope that despite all of the initial challenges and craziness, that 2021 will bring good health, wealth, and prosperity to you and your family. Here are the Spring 2021 Activities. 

  • Writing Group - As a Network, we are writing a manuscript that provides an overview and analysis of the information and materials we developed during the November conference. We are looking to see who among the network is interested in taking part in this writing endeavor, noting that those who do will be co-authors of the manuscript. To sign up, please use this link provided. We are asking that everyone who is interested complete this form by Tuesday, January 26th. Link to register: https://tinyurl.com/RECNetworkPaper

 

  • Call for Resources - Please note on the QUBES page under the "collections tab" where we are looking for resources that faculty, staff, students, teachers, STEM professionals, and the community at-large can use to advance our mission of re-envisioning the culture of undergraduate biology education to better meet the needs of Black students. We are asking that you share any publications, "best practices," readings, or other materials on the site in the appropriate tab. One tab is for things to consider for future research in this area; the other tab is for materials to use for teaching and mentoring. This is an on-going endeavor, so please add to it as you come across any new materials or come up with new materials that you are using. 

 

  • There will be two meetings that take place this semester that are continuations of the events that transpired at the November conference. The first meeting will be continued conversations and strategizing around the topic of "Black Student Experiences in Undergraduate Biology Education." This conversation will focus on further developing the SWOT analysis that we started during the conference, and is tentatively scheduled to take place the last week of February. 

 

  • The second meeting, "Re-Envisioning the Culture Through Freedom Dreams," will focus on the plans of actions started during the November conference and ways we can begin to enact our goals of transforming the culture of UBE to better meet the needs of Black students. This meeting is tentatively scheduled to take place the last week of April

 

Please be on the lookout for more specific information regarding these two events as well as other opportunities to engage the network through the twitter page (https://twitter.com/rec_network1?lang=en) as we look to invite more interested people to join the network as well as disseminate the information we are developing and curating.
