Tonight we had a special interview with Dr. Sheila Jaswal and Anna Makar-Limanov ’20 of Amherst College who shared their experiences with a new initiative called Humans in STEM. Dr. Jaswal of the department of Chemistry and Megan Lyster, Asst Dir, Innovation & Experiential Learning Programs at the Center for Community Engagement have developed a curriculum aimed at exploring how students and faculty can better serve the full human experience of learning in STEM fields. The course aims to develop ways to increase diversity and support traditionally underserved student populations in STEM fields. A similar course has been developed at Yale University and will hopefully spread out to institutions throughout the country.
