Conference Session

Uprooting the STEM Weed-Out System

Discussions about disparate success patterns in STEM courses (including mathematics, a gatekeeper to most STEM fields) often focus on student characteristics rather than institutional responsibility for student learning. Research has shown that pervasive assumptions and biases about individual ability can reinforce existing inequities. This session examined research on the culture of STEM and how institutions can shift their focus from attempting to “fix” students to redesigning STEM programs.
