The mission of the SCORE-UBE Network is to help our Network participants achieve their sustainability and broader impact goals by working together to amplify the value and reach of open education in STEM and to align our resources and practices with the principles of anti-racism, equity, social justice, and inclusion. In particular, we see open education as an approach and mindset to transform teaching and learning to center the needs of underrepresented and marginalized learners and instructors who have been systematically excluded from the benefits of traditional educational systems.

This is an open network in that anyone is welcome to join who also embraces the SCORE mission. We are broad in our definition of biology education as it draws from many other fields, we embrace generalist OER organizations and interested instituitions, and we acknowledge that open education involves more than just texts, but communities, software, and philosophies.
