Cultural Event: “Rising to the Challenge of Diversifying STEM Fields”

Ferris will be hosting Professor Dave Kung on Wednesday, March 15th from 4:30 to 5:45pm in STR 136. Professor Dave Kung from St. Mary’s College of Maryland will speak about the following: Women and under-represented minorities are more likely to fall out of the STEM pipeline at every stage from middle school on. Why do we need to address this issue? What can we do in our classrooms, departments and institutions to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to succeed? Research suggests that interactive teaching methods, in contrast to passive lectures, might help us successfully address issues of diversity. Why do they work? What else must we do to make the mathematics world more equitable?
