This institute is designed for faculty and administrators to develop or enhance their knowledge, skills, and competencies in increasing access, fostering diversity, and creating an inclusive environment for all students in undergraduate research, scholarship, and creativity programs (URSCA). Institutions will send faculty and administrator teams to the institute that will craft an action plan to achieve inclusive excellence on their home campus. A goal of the institute is for participants to develop an authentic program that supports broadening participation in URSCA across campus and/or within a given department, program, or focus.
Examples of plans that teams have developed at past institutes include the following:
Three key themes will weave throughout the institute—preparation, climate, and mentorship. Each day will include lectures, case studies, and breakout sessions—facilitated by leaders in higher education—that are designed to promote networking and collaboration. The discussions will inform and prompt discussion about current solutions to broadening participation of underrepresented students and to stimulate new creative solutions. Institute participants will gain a wealth of resources and personal connections that will help them increase participation by a wide population of students.
