SEISMIC Overview

September 28, 2020
The SEISMIC Collaboration is a collection of educators, researchers, students, student support staff, and more who work in higher education and have seen the persistent problem of inequity and non-inclusion in STEM education. We use a Working Group structure to take advantage of the expertise across SEISMIC and to promote collaborative work in “themes,” rather than by discipline, institution, or title. In this way, our Working Groups are multi-institutional, multi-disciplinary, have participants working in a range of roles at their institutions, and are motivated to study a specific area that will contribute to making our intro STEM courses more equitable and inclusive.
