Excellence: A Critical Examination of Accountability

May 30 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm UTC-5

Today, the demand for global competitiveness in undergraduate science education is situated within a shifting sociopolitical context that is increasingly made complex by the troubling history of race relations in America. This contemporary reality requires that we boldly embrace a more dynamic conceptualization of excellence in undergraduate science education—one that advances innovation and rightfully positions inclusion as its necessary precondition. This shift must begin with a set of standards, or agreements, that release us from the conventional workaround approaches that we have become so accustomed to. Collectively, our Agreements for Excellence point toward far more daring shifts in institutional change strategies that can design, create, and support a new institutional stance for undergraduate science education—predisposing and positioning it, and the STEM faculty within it, to hold themselves accountable for desiring, fostering, recognizing, and requiring the actions and outcomes that are quintessential for inclusion and indistinguishable from excellence.
