The Computer Science Department is committed to broadening the participation of students in STEM fields by enacting an anti-racist agenda, fostering equitable and inclusive classroom spaces, and increasing access to faculty-mentored research opportunities. A commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI), including how it pertains to student success and pedagogy, should be evident in the candidate’s professional activities.
Scholarship: The Department values and recognizes multiple forms of scholarship, including that related to STEM education reform and diversity, equity, and inclusion in pedagogy. The Department plans to continue drawing upon an ever-expanding broad range of faculty interests and talents and to promote vital connections with a wide variety of academic communities.
Service Toward Broadening Participation: The Computer Science Department would like to deepen and expand its commitment to improving equity, diversity, and inclusion in STEM fields by diversifying the curriculum, fostering a diverse and anti-racist community, creating and maintaining inclusive learning environments, and offering mentorship to students from multiple backgrounds. A successful candidate should be prepared to collaborate with the department on these issues and have the potential to provide direction and leadership for some of the initiatives that arise from this collaboration.
