The fifth event in our Quaker Leadings in Higher Education series was held on Tuesday, September 22, 2020. The theme was:
Freeing Higher Education from Systemic Racism: Cultivating healthy environments to learn and teach
Which kinds of STEM training programs and mentorship experiences are more likely to result in historically excluded students persisting in academic career pathways? How might retention be helped by certain institutional policies and a climate that provides kindness cues that affirm social inclusion?
