The THRIVE project seeks to disrupt existing conditions at Missouri University to create an environment where students thrive. As a consultant for the THRIVE project, I am working with team members to analyze data and disseminate findings related to Faculty Learning Communities and the student experience at MU. Additionally, I am investigating inclusive practices in higher education and how they are evaluated.
Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity Alliance (IDEA)
American Physical Society
APS-IDEA is establishing a community of transformation to support physics laboratories, departments, and other organizations in enacting strategies to improve inclusion, diversity, and equity in physics. For APS-IDEA, I have given workshops on how to use the Departmental Action Team (DAT) model for change and how to use the Change Dashboard to plan change efforts. Currently, I am a facilitator for a group of universities who are participating in the alliance.
