For a Racially Just, Inclusive, and Open STEM Education

The RIOS Institute exists to kickstart the implementation of Open Education (OE) and social-justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (S-JEDI) practices in STEM higher education. We provide support and resources for STEM organization leaders to bring S-JEDI-centered Open science pedagogy, materials, and resources to the members of their academic organizations and by extension to the institutions where their members teach and do research. Read more about Our Mission here.


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, open to our network, Working Groups and Professional Learning Communities.

We are currently accepting proposals for new Working Groups! These groups receive a $2000 budget to develop a tangible product aligned with the RIOS mission. Proposals are accepted on a rolling basis until Feb 15th, 2022. For more details, and to apply, see the full call here.
