7th Conference on Understanding Interventions…

This conference was established to facilitate dissemination and exchange of hypothesis-based research on interventions and initiatives that broaden participation in science and engineering research careers. The conference is designed to create a dialogue among behavioral/social science and education researchers, evaluators, and faculty in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields who participate in intervention programs. Graduate students in these fields are strongly encouraged to attend. Workshops, sessions, and posters will communicate effective strategies from successful STEM intervention programs, present results from empirical research studies, and synthesize the translation of research findings into practice on STEM learning, undergraduate research, graduate education, and student retention.

The three day program includes

Poster sessions where graduate students, postdocs, and young faculty in particular have the opportunity to display their intervention activities. PIs are encouraged to update outcomes from their ongoing programs as well.

Our broader mission is to positively impact the outcomes of efforts aimed at broadening participation in research and research careers through the expansion and dissemination of the relevant body of knowledge, and facilitate its implementation in practice, policy development, training, and professional development.

    Your Abstracts page references a sample schedule below, but then doesn’t have the sample schedule. What are the hours of the various events on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday? When should flights be booked?
