The committee meets monthly, mid afternoon on the first tuesday of the month via Zoom.

The Change Team

SEA (STEMM Equity Achievement) Change is a AAAS initiative to target STEMM (STEM + Medicine) fields in colleges and universities so that they can exemplify excellence, equity, diversity, and inclusion. Our campus is a charter member of SEA Change. The Bronze Award we are applying for is the first in a series of awards that recognize institutions for (their commitment to) a long term, sustainable DEI transformation in STEMM through self-assessment (https://seachange.aaas.org/awards/overview).

 

Applying for a Bronze Award consists of three components: a self-assessment (an internal process only), a 17,000 words narrative summarizing it, and an action plan (the latter two are components of our application, hence AAAS facing). Our campus process, spearheaded by the Change Team, will include all academic divisions, with the twofold goal of (i) undergoing the Bronze Award application process and, equally importantly, (ii) providing a platform that would help increase the visibility of our many DEI initiatives across the whole campus, promote interactions between these initiatives and increase their impact. For feasibility, the AAAS SEA Change Bronze Award has an emphasis on faculty, and our process will preserve this focus.

 

Committee members will attend several full-group meetings, and will work in subcommittees on sections of the self-assessment, the narrative, and the action plan.
