For students dreaming of careers in science, technology, engineering and math fields, at public research universities like the U-M, introductory courses in these subjects are the first steps on a path to a STEM degree.

The class sizes are huge. They also can be challenging, causing many students to stumble on these first steps.

As a result, students often shift course, abandoning their dreams of working in a STEM discipline, researchers say.

University of Michigan Engineering is excited to welcome Dr. Timothy McKay to our DEI lecture series for the month of February. His lecture will be focused on the Sloan Equity and Inclusion in STEM Introductory Courses (SEISMIC) project – a multi-university initiative to tackle equity and inclusion in STEM.

He will discuss ways that institutions can collaborate to ensure courses are diverse, equitable and inclusive for students.
