Step by step: practical actions for achieving broader impacts @ Webinar
Jan 18 all-day

The National Alliance for Broader Impacts, founded by the NSF to guide the development of broader impacts, recommends creating “a communications strategy for stakeholders at all levels, to facilitate audience understanding of impacts.” But many researchers don’t feel they have the time or expertise to do this.

STEM-ESS Institute: Creating Hispanic-Serving Identity in STEM through Evidence-based Student-Serving Strategies
Apr 8 – Apr 9 all-day

Complete application by January 31, 2020.
To support institutions working to accelerate Latino student success in STEM, Excelencia in Education and Science Foundation Arizona Center for STEM at Arizona State University (SFAz) offer a transformative set of activities to develop a compelling case for change.

Your journey begins prior to the Institute by identifying a cross-institutional team with members who are passionate and committed to a common cause of Latino student success in STEM. As pre-work, the team completes a comprehensive self-assessment of your institution’s current status in STEM — the extent to which it is evidence-based and student serving (STEM-ESS). Then, during the intensively hands-on Institute, SFAz will facilitate discussion of the data and the development of a STEM plan with strategies and actions to address gaps and leverage strengths. Participants will have a framework to assess their institution’s STEM-ESS capability and a strategic case for change that is supported by evidence. This can engage institutional leadership to implement strategies to enable Latino student success in STEM. Three to six months after the Institute, SFAz and Excelencia will discuss potential technical assistance opportunities with your team based on the outcomes from STEM Plans.

For questions please contact Excelencia at Seal@EdExcelencia.org. For more information on the Seal of Excelencia, please visit onlinehttps://www.edexcelencia.org/seal-excelencia
