REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Creating a Better Summer Experience: A DEI Workshop for REU Directors and Faculty Mentors

May 9, 2021 all-day

Research experiences for undergraduates have become ubiquitous in mathematics and participation in such programs is used as a tool to measure graduate school readiness by many graduate programs. Yet many programs have not addressed the needs of students who have been historically excluded from mathematics so that they may thrive in these summer programs. This workshop will provide the tools to assist with mentoring underrepresented and minoritized students in mathematics. We invite REU directors and faculty research mentors, preference will be given to faculty teams involved in summer 2021 summer research programs, to attend the sessions where we discuss building supportive communities of scholars, the science of mentoring, as well as a summary of lessons learned from NSF CORE grant on supporting students of color in the mathematical sciences.
