This grant supports the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) to design, launch, and facilitate a learning community for grantees in Sloan’s Creating Equitable Pathways to STEM Graduate Education initiative, which seeks to develop pathways for Black, Indigenous, and Latina/o/x students from Minority Serving Institutions to STEM graduate programs across the country. Grant funds will allow AAAS to integrate Sloan grantees into the organization’s successful SEA Change initiative, which aims to make diversity, equity, and inclusion normative in STEM higher education through a proven model of systemic reform. Activities delivered through the AAAS “Port of Call” platform will support Sloan principal investigators and their project teams in reaching their project goals. Such activities include community discussion groups; quarterly video conferences; up to four live courses per year; and various forms of engagement with fellow Sloan grantees, SEA Change members, AAAS staff, and leading experts in the field. In-person networking will be facilitated via an annual grantee meeting adjacent to existing AAAS programming, and grantees will be invited to attend award ceremonies, networking receptions, and other events at the AAAS annual meeting.
