What

Since 1992, the Biology Scholars Program (BSP) has been an ‘island of hope and responsibility’ to help undergraduates from low-income, first-to-college, and underrepresented ethnic backgrounds succeed in biology at Berkeley. Can the BSP model be scaled and replicated to help address chronic underrepresentation in our STEM majors?

 

At our 3rd annual HHMI funded Expanding Undergraduate Success in STEM Conference you will

 

  1. Hear from Dr. Kelly Mack, VP Undergraduate Science Education at the American Association of Colleges and Universities, who will present the latest evidence-based recommendations about what Berkeley needs to do as an institution to make our STEM majors more equitable,
  2. Get a research update from Dr. Mica Estrada, UCSF about why BSP works,
  3. Find out the specifics of how BSP advises, mentors, and teaches its students to get the results it does, and
  4. Work with other advisors, instructors, and mentors to assess the strengths and limitations of using BSP’s ‘best practices’ to work with your students.
