Online application will be available February 1 – deadline for submission is March 29
University of New Hampshire
Each year the Postdoctoral Diversity and Innovation Scholars program will attract a cohort of 4 – 5 highly talented underrepresented postdoctoral scholars to the University of New Hampshire.
Through a nationally competitive application and review process, we seek to bring excellent scholars to our campus who have a passion for teaching, research, and public engagement within the context of a research (R1) university that values its commitment to the public good.
Among this program’s highest priority is the professional development and preparation of scholars toward an opportunity to apply for a tenure track position. The program is built on the existing professional development model for UNH junior faculty that has been proven to help bolster their career success.
In addition, a mentoring network which includes a research mentor, departmental advocate and scholarly coach is a key element of the scholars’ mentoring plan.
How do we ensure that every students’ academic experiences are equitable, accessible, and relevant?
What is possible when full-time and adjunct faculty use inclusive, evidence-based instructional practices to engage students and foster their learning? How can faculty engage as key collaborators in the college’s student success efforts?
Participants at the inaugural ATD Teaching and Learning Summit will learn how colleges can create a culture of teaching and learning excellence for student success. The Summit is uniquely designed to support institutional teams of four or more in examining classroom-based practices and designing an action-based strategy for implementing instructional models that support students to succeed and achieve their academic and professional goals.
This event is designed for institutional teams of faculty, faculty developers, and academic affairs leaders to focus their work in one of these key areas and engage in highly interactive sessions and team planning time:
- Open Educational Resources: Beyond Cost
- Guided Pathways: Ensuring Students Are Learning
- Culturally Responsive Practices: Leveraging Knowledge for Equity
- Adaptive Courseware for Early Success (By Invitation only: Every Learner Everywhere)
In each of these threads, participants will work with expert facilitators to build or enhance their classroom-based reforms as they learn:
- Active, accessible, and empowering instructional practices to foster student learning and success.
- Implementation strategies to scale high impact pedagogy across the institution.
- How Centers for Teaching & Learning (and other faculty professional development units) can be leveraged to support deep implementation of classroom-based reforms.
- Resources and tools they can apply to effectively execute on their plans and integrate this work with other student success initiatives.
- How to build strong, authentic collaborations between academic affairs and student affairs to bolster student success.
Open Educational Resources: Beyond Cost

Guided Pathways: Ensuring Students Are Learning
Workshop for an Academic Affairs leader (e.g., VP or Dean), 1-2 faculty members from different disciplines (ideally serving on the institution’s Guided Pathways steering committee), a CTL director/faculty developer, an administrator or staff member who oversees/coordinates the college’s Guided Pathways work.
Culturally Responsive Practices
Workshop for an Academic Affairs leader (e.g., VP or Dean), 1-2 faculty members from different disciplines, a CTL director/faculty developer, an administrator or staff member who oversees/coordinates diversity/equity/multicultural/intercultural initiatives and programming.

Transforming STEM Higher Education
Sankofa, a word in the Twi language of the Akan tribe of Ghana, loosely translates to “looking back while going forward.” This year, the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) will celebrate the thirty years of success that Project Kaleidoscope (PKAL) has had in providing effective professional and leadership development for STEM faculty. At the same time, we anticipate the ten-year anniversary of PKAL’s affiliation with AAC&U in 2020. The union of AAC&U and PKAL as a voice and force for undergraduate STEM reform represents a bold organizational move toward ensuring that STEM disciplines remain central to what constitutes a quality undergraduate education. It also reveals the magnitude of what’s possible when diverse perspectives, disciplines, and worldviews are fully considered and brought to bear on organizational change.
It is in the spirit of such change that this conference calls upon STEM disciplinary faculty and education researchers to join us in charting a daring path for STEM higher education reform that is paved with social consciousness, critical reflection, introspection, and disciplinary boundary crossing. Indeed, if we are to heed the nation’s call for a competitively trained and diverse STEM workforce, we must first be open in acknowledging that our unique disciplinary approaches to problem solving, by themselves, will not fully resolve our most perplexing challenges. Examination and investigation of undergraduate STEM education reform must not only extend across multiple institutional contexts, but also be critical, intelligent, and patient, serving all student demographics and withstanding the influences of existing systems and structures of exclusion. Above all, these efforts must be unceasing.
To that end, the “Transforming STEM Higher Education” conference will question and examine the entire range of contemporary challenges to—and opportunities for—STEM higher education reform, including exploring contemporary approaches to teaching, broadening participation, interrogating research studies, and verifying assessment tools for determining effectiveness. In keeping with our commitment to STEM faculty, we will also explore novel approaches to professional and leadership development. Conference attendees will be invited to unveil and abate disciplinary biases, confront fixations on “fix the student” reform models, and question theories about what can and cannot count as evidence of effectiveness.
Through this unique conference experience, together we will continue our legacy of advancing the kind of undergraduate STEM education reform that brings diverse perspectives and worldviews to bear on levers of change. In doing so, we will also guarantee our nation’s capacity to use those levers to drive innovation, discovery, social change, and life choices. Ultimately, we give deeper meaning and purpose to our way of knowing, understanding, and advancing STEM higher education practice, research, and policy.
