More on our theme: 
Creating equitable, inclusive learning environments for all of our students is paramount for empowering them as thinkers, scientists, and citizens, and for advancing scientific discovery and innovation. How do we foster a sense of belonging in each student and a sense of community for the class as a whole? How do we reduce barriers to participation and engage all perspectives? How do we position ourselves as leaders but also empower students to guide their own learning? In turn, what strategies for fostering inclusion and equity carry from the classroom into our professional networks?   

The BioQUEST community, through the 2022 BIOME Institute, will aim to support faculty in building a sense of community and belonging within their classrooms and groups with the goal of creating networks and partnerships founded on mutual trust, respect, and open collaboration between students and educational leaders. BioQUEST has been a leader in STEM education reform for the past 35 years, and this year we will continue to grow our community through conversations focused on shifting the relationship between instructors and students, reframing instructional practice, and improving all student outcomes and feelings of belonging in STEM.
