SEA: STEMM (Science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine) Equity Achievement


SEA Change (a program of AAAS) aims to advance institutional transformation in support of diversity, equity, and inclusion, especially in colleges and universities.


TPSE is leading the effort to reach those goals within the mathematical sciences. A diverse group of 15 leaders, TPSE’s Mathematical and Statistical Sciences working group will produce a set of guidelines to help departments:

  • Understand how their policies and practices relate to equity and inclusion

  • Identify their most important gaps

  • Develop tangible action plans to address those gaps

TPSE Leadership Institute


The TPSE Math Leadership Institute is a year-long program that helps prepare a diverse group of future leaders within the mathematics community. The goal is to help each participant learn new leadership skills and expand their vision of what leadership means. Each participant will increase their ability to make a difference as a leader at the local and national levels, and respond to future challenges as leaders at their institution, in professional organizations, and within Federal agencies. The Institute especially encourages participants from underrepresented groups in mathematics.

Tech Tip Videos

The Teaching Strategies and Practices sub-group of TPSE has commissioned a set of short videos to explain various technology tools that can be used to engage students in the learning of mathematics.

The videos give a brief description of the tool, the pedagogical purpose, and an explanation of how the tool can support the learning goals of mathematics courses and enhance the student’s experience.

The video shows the tool in use from both faculty and student perspective. Videos and tips are available to all classroom teachers.
