Development of the Broadening Equity in STEM Center (BE STEM Center)

Abstract

Pitt’s Broadening Equity in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Center (BE STEM Center) is a newly created unit in the Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences’ Office of Undergraduate Studies. Faculty and staff from several academic and administrative units comprise the center’s multidisciplinary collaborative team, leveraging academic and professional expertise centered around broadening equity work. The center’s mission is to increase diversity in Pitt’s STEM programs by serving as a hub interconnecting like-minded but siloed efforts and providing programs with relevant organizational support. This proposal focuses on developing the communication and dissemination infrastructure of this newly established center.
