BIO 161 - Being Human in STEM


Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) environments are far less diverse than the population at large and are thereby missing considerable talent to solve critically important problems in improving the human experience (health, environment, etc.). BIO 161 is a seminar course in which students investigate the scholarship examining disparities regarding who participates in STEM as well as the communities that these scientists do and do not serve. Students will bring their diverse experiences, interests, and expertise to collaborate on charting sustainable paths toward more inclusivity in STEM at Davidson and beyond.

Satisfies Justice, Equality, and Community requirement.
