Title: Promoting Underrepresented Minority Student Academic Success Using an Inclusive Professional Framework
Lead Presenter: Sean Bridgen
Date: October 06, 2021    Time: 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Room: 232, DECC
Abstract: Faculty play a key role in the academic success of underrepresented undergraduate students. Key to this is their ability to be inclusive in their teaching, mentoring in research settings and advising. The NSF INCLUDES Aspire Alliance promotes underrepresented minority student academic achievement, and effects change by aligning and reinforcing both professional development and hiring practices of diverse and inclusive Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) faculty. Aspire has developed an Inclusive Professional Framework for Faculty (IPF: Faculty), which is grounded in research and theory, and engages faculty in the development of foundational skills that promote increased student academic success. We will engage participants in this session through presentation, discussion, case-based scenarios, as well as individual and group reflection. The facilitators will introduce Aspire's IPF: Faculty, and guide participants through hands-on activities to think about the following: (a) self and student identity, and the impact identity has on learning, (b) intercultural skills to promote learning, and (c) communication and relational skills more broadly. Participants will leave the session having engaged in these activities, and considered practical applications for the IPF: Faculty in training current and future faculty for their numerous roles on their own campuses.
