Institutions of higher education have long codified in their strategic plans a belief in the value of diversity and the need to work to bring about equity in our institutions. Unfortunately, we are not there yet. In this session we will reexamine some of the diversity work that has traditionally been implemented in higher ed, specifically at the classroom level, and consider modifications and alternatives in pedagogy, curriculum, and beliefs that help to make equity work in the classroom more effective. This reexamination is essential in STEM fields, where there has been a long-held belief that the content is neutral, and diversity in these fields has historically lagged behind other fields.
