Transforming STEM Higher Education: Back to Broken?

Accelerating Undergraduate STEM Education Reform

Arlington, VA

Register today and join us for this year’s STEM Conference which aims to reflect on the dire need for advancing undergraduate STEM reform in the age of a global pandemic, racial uprisings, and deep sociopolitical divides.

It is critical that we all take this opportunity to explore and confront the systems, structures, traditions, and beliefs that continue to privilege some while disadvantaging others.

By attending this event, you may find yourself asking:

  • Do I have the audacity to challenge my own core beliefs?
  • Do I have the courage to break down and rebuild my institution’s structures, traditions, and beliefs?
  • Am I bold enough to accept the narratives that tell us we must “transform,” not just reform, undergraduate STEM education?

Dates to Remember

  • First Day of Conference

  • Last Day of Conference
