Contributing to the Development of an Anti-Racist Biology Cirriculum

Over the past few months, the ASU RISE (Research for Inclusive STEM Education) Center has held workshops and seminars aimed at addressing racial inequities within academic biology. The purpose was to help the ASU community identify many of the existing inequities that are perpetuated on academic campuses, and to work on producing innovative research on ways to make undergraduate STEM classrooms more inclusive, as well as educating STEM faculty about how they can better serve all students. Several of the participants, including Conservation Innovation lab graduate student Katie Surrey, and organizers collaborated to write this summary of the important discussion points that emerged from the discussions.
