A startling new study shows that the probability of passing introductory STEM courses and successfully getting a STEM degree varies dramatically with a student's gender, ethnicity, and socio-economic status - even when their high school preparation is equal.
Our webinar is tailored for STEM educators and administrators who are looking for practical strategies that can be put in place for the 2023-2024 year to overcome this disparity and raise pass rates. We hope you find this recording helpful.

Dr. Brown is Professor of Mathematics at Penn State University (PSU), after holding research positions at Institut Henri Poincaré, University of California at Berkeley, Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Michigan State University, and University of Tokyo. His research has received continuous support from the National Science Foundation since 1999. His teaching has been recognized by PSU’s highest honor, the Eisenhower Teaching Award. He coordinates the math component of the Millennium Scholars Program, PSU’s premier undergraduate program aiming to diversify STEM fields. His advocacy for equity and inclusion have been recognized by a Robinson Equal Opportunity Award and TEDx talk on “The Math People Myth.” An Affiliate at the Institute for Quantitative Study of Inclusion, Diversity and Equity (QSIDE) and Research Associate in PSU’s Center for the Study of Higher Education, his research now focuses on (in)equity in STEM education.
Dr. Adam Hrincevich’s teaching philosophy has evolved over his 25+ years of helping students learn biological concepts. Adam has taught in the formal classroom setting with very large class sizes (~750 per semester), one-on-one in a tutorial setting, and in an online learning environment as part of a virtual classroom. While every person has the ability to present material to students, only those who have a true passion for teaching can effectively convey new concepts and theories. In a profession that has the potential to affect so many individuals, Dr. Hrincevich has taken his passion for the educational process and passed it on to students in hope of stimulating a lifetime of learning.
