The Center for Learning, Education, and Research in the Sciences aims to expand and strengthen the college’s commitment to the equity-centered education of future leaders in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics).
CLEAR is committed to supporting campus stakeholders from all identities to create an equitable, inclusive, and just climate for learning without barriers. In order to achieve this critical goal CLEAR will do the following:
- Collaborate with campus offices, departments, and administration to expand the college’s capacity to support students historically excluded from STEM
- Develop programming to support the sense of belonging and success of students with marginalized identities in STEM, including but not limited to; students of color, students with disabilities, LGBTQIA+, and women
- Recruit and train students to serve as change agents in STEM through peer mentoring, and academic co-curricular support
- Provide resources and support for equity and inclusion focused efforts by individual faculty and departments
