IMSD Program at NC State:  Promoting a Sense of Community among Undergraduate Research Scholars     [BALTIMORE A]      

 

This presentation will focus on the strategies that were implemented to create a sense of community through program activities for students participating in a research program at NC State University.  The goal of the session is to discuss preliminary findings on the role of psychosocial variables (i.e., social support and sense of community) and the impact they have on the retention of URM students majoring in areas of biomedical and behavioral science.  The session should benefit administrators, faculty members, and others engaged in the implementation of enhancement programs on campus.

Discipline-specific Workshops: Building Connections to the Research Community

[MARYLAND A]

 

The Discipline-Specific Workshop (DSW) program has sponsored 30 workshops in the computing field since 2006.  Each workshop focuses on a specific sub discipline, includes both technical and career development content, and is often co-located with a major conference.  DSWs have proven successful in engaging participants from underrepresented groups (usually graduate students) with their research community, and their research communities with them.  In this session, a DSW organizer and an evaluator will describe the value of the DSW experience and guidelines for successful operation, and will involve the audience in discussion of how a similar effort might work in other fields.

Building Capacity for Research on Culturally Sensitive Interventions at HBCUs

[BALTIMORE B]

 

This workshop will establish the link between culturally sensitive interventions for broadening participation in STEM and the undergirding social science theories that best define and explain them.   A community of practitioners from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) will present their findings in tandem with social science researchers from a wide range of institutions.  Following the panel discussion, attendees will be actively engaged in identifying institutional and interdisciplinary strategies that are not only appropriate for producing URM STEM baccalaureates, but also are adaptable and easily transferable to the STEM higher education community at large.  The expected outcomes of the workshop are: 1) a knowledge of the social science theories within the context of successful interventions and practices;  and 2) frameworks for potential collaborations between practitioners and social scientists.

 

3-4:30                                                            Concurrent Workshop     

 

Sharpe, Angela L., Jean H. Shin, Martha Zaslow, George L. Wimberly, and Sarah Schoolcraft Conrad

Strengthening Interventions through Data:  A Workshop on New-Cross-Disciplinary Research for Developing Mentoring Interventions [MARYLAND F]

 

This workshop engages scholars from all education settings who are interested in developing the pipeline of underrepresented minority (URM) scientists. Attendees will be asked for feedback on the kinds of data, measures, and standards needed to effectively study URM career trajectories, and then will discuss the impact of mentoring, networks, and the formation or improvement of intervention programs housed at professional societies, universities/colleges, foundations, and agencies. In doing so, attendees can provide valuable input on the next steps for the Collaborative for Enhancing Diversity in Science (CEDS. a multidisciplinary groups in Washington, DC) moving forward, including a large ongoing literature review on mentoring within the STEM community.

 

 

3-5                                                      Concurrent Workshop

From Mentor to Coach:  Having a Broader Impact to Complement the Work of Scientific Mentors [MARYLAND D]

 

This workshop is for individuals who already mentor trainees to see how their roles and skills could be expanded to “the next level” as Coach.  It is also for leaders of interventions to consider how a coach could complement research mentors.  Our design and testing of Coaching emanate from the randomized controlled trial of our Academy for Future Science Faculty, through an NIH Director’s Pathfinder Award to Promote Diversity in the Scientific Workforce.  Participants will learn the social science theories underpinning our approach to Coaching, what we are learning from the Academy, and map coaching onto their own interventions.
