For a Racially Just, Inclusive, and Open STEM Education

The RIOS Institute provides resources for STEM education and organization leaders to implement social justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (SJEDI)-centered Open Education and Open Science pedagogy, materials, and resources. We work with and provide support for leaders to bring change to their communities and members of their organizations. Read more about Our Mission, and learn Who We Are!

As we work towards equity and justice in STEM Education, the RIOS Institute promotes collaboration among the network of leaders we serve. We offer two primary opportunities, Working Groups and Learning Communities.

Have an exciting idea? We will be accepting proposals for new Working Groups and Learning Communities in May 2022.
