PSE Math was awarded an NSF INCLUDES grant to expand the COME-IN RESOURCES to support a 2-year project that trains mathematicians and statisticians and supports departments in participation initiatives. This material is based upon work supported by the U. S. National Science Foundation under Award No. #2304106.  Any opinions, findings and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this project are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation.

OVERVIEW

Join a network of individuals & departments from across the country in this 2-year NSF-funded DEI pilot program, which will test the viability of COME-IN Resources (see below) in small departmental teams. With guidance of DEI experts, 6 participants will train as DEI consultants and be paired with 6 departmental teams to plan and execute a DEI activity or project in the participating department. This program consists of four connected components:

 

  • Building a foundation to improve broadening participation and inclusion efforts in departments

  • Training consultants

  • Establishing a network of invested institutions

  • Evaluating efficacy 

 

 

CONSULTANTS 

  • Attend the summer training workshop Brigham Young University, Provo, UT (May 28 -June 1)

  • Participate in bi-monthly virtual meetings with department teams and DEI experts for training 

  • Help departments collect & analyze their institutional/department data and practices, formulate an implementation plan. TPSE leadership can help determine the feasibility of the project. 

  • Plan for an in person visit to your paired department in year one and two. 

  • Guide departments through plan implementation

  • Financial support & honoraria provided 

DEPARTMENTS

  • Attend the summer training workshop Brigham Young University, Provo, UT (May 28 -June 1)

  • Participate in bi-monthly virtual meetings with consultants and DEI experts for training 

  • With the help of the designated consultant, analyze your institutional/department data and practices, formulate an implementation plan. TPSE leadership can help determine the feasibility of the project. 

  • Plan for visit from consultant trainee in year one and two. Plan for visit from senior evaluator in year two. 

  • Financial support & honoraria provided 

YEAR ONE: Department teams will work with consultants to analyze their institution's data and brainstorm possible DEI improvement projects.​

YEAR TWO:  Utilizing COME-IN Resources, department and consultant teams will focus on refining and implementing the project.

MATH JEDI COMMUNITY

The Math JEDI (justice, equity, diversity & inclusion) Community is a space where dedicated JEDIs can share successes and challenges, ask others for ideas, and form a community to keep this work alive and support our mutual accountability. The Math Jedi Community (MJC) Slack Channel will host conversations, speakers, and other events. 

Participate in the Math JEDI Community Slack Channel today.  We would love to learn about your goals, efforts, and other experiences from the field to move our collective efforts forward.
