Students in the field at the base of a cliff

Belonging in field education

Our project envisions STEM field courses as spaces where undergraduate students feel welcomed into equitable environments that sustain and celebrate their identities and backgrounds. 

We are conducting research with students and faculty to understand the factors that build and shape a student’s sense of belonging and will use our findings to support a Community of Practice that builds the capacity of faculty in the field sciences to share and implement classroom interventions that increase inclusion and equity.


This project is funded by the National Science Foundation award #2110824.
