Join faculty and staff colleagues from across campus to form learning communities around the topics that emerged during lunches these past weeks for Oberlin's Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) Inclusive Excellence grant. The Learning Communities composed of faculty and staff will pursue a process of self-education and exploration of emergent topics of interest that will advance Oberlin's historic role in inclusion by enhancing the climate for and success of a diverse student population in STEM.
The groups will decide how to proceed, how often to meet, and what an end product might look like. CLEAR Director Marcelo Vinces and STEM Fellow Nicollette Mitchell are available as resources for the learning communities, which will advance the grant's aim to support Oberlin's historic role in inclusion by enhancing the climate for and success of a diverse student population in STEM.
If you missed the last two weeks of lunches, it’s not too late to join, learn about the grant efforts, and join the conversations. Please come to our last lunch on Thursday, September 21, 12:15-1:15pm in Science Center A254. RSVP for lunch here: https://goo.gl/forms/UxNt4duoAxF5kGY33
The participation of faculty and staff from across the curriculum and from a broad range of offices was critical to Oberlin receiving the HHMI grant, and the continued involvement of employees from all departments and offices is welcomed and encouraged.
