2017 SHPE National Conference Deans’ Roundtable

At SHPE Conference 2016 in Seattle, Washington the Deans’ Summit welcomed 35 attendees, primarily deans and associate deans, from institutions across the country.   The Deans’ Summit 2016 provided a forum for academic leaders to discuss issues of diversity in STEM.  Elevating and advancing the momentum from last year’s dialogue, this year’s forum of invited deans and academic leaders will deliberate on the following key topics: Results from the 2017 National Deans’ Survey, diversity practices at various institutions, and opportunities to strengthen ties between SHPE and Academia.  The conversations will be transcribed and shared with deans nationally. The goal of the Deans’ Roundtable 2017 is to collectively discuss national strategies for recruitment and retention of Hispanics in academia, give networking opportunities to deans and academic leaders from across the nation, and provide a platform for deans to showcase the work on diversity at their institution.
