Equity updates -
You think you’re just a drop in the ocean…but look at the ripple effect one drop can make! (IMPACT, p7). You can help create a ripple by joining the newly formed IMPACT Team.
The IMPACT Team is reviewing and/or proposing updates to our standards in preparation for the Toronto conference. The focus will be on the following:
If you are interested in joining the IMPACT Team please provide the information requested on this form by March 21st.
If you have any questions feel free to contact Julie Phelps (email@example.com), Evan Evans (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Karen Gaines (email@example.com).
The Inclusive STEM Teaching Project is designed to advance the awareness, self-efficacy, and ability of STEM faculty, postdocs, graduate students, and staff to cultivate inclusive learning environments for all their students and to develop themselves as reflective, inclusive practitioners. In addition, these ideas and concepts are valuable to individuals in all aspects of education, such as high school teachers, instructors in the arts, humanities, law, medicine, social sciences, and other fields, as well as administrators and faculty developers.The modules cover the following themes designed to help instructors construct classroom environments that support the complexities that contribute to student persistence: social identity and its impact on learning; power, positionality, and privilege; inclusive course design; interruption of oppression and microaggressions; and evidence-based teaching.

The math intensive group is working on updating a position statement about the role of mathematics in getting a two year degree. Would you like to be involved in making some strong recommendations to this group around equity? What would it look like to be bold and reframe our AMATYC recommendation based from an equity lens? See this google doc for the current state of affairs.
More generally, it would be good for us to be aware of all position statements being created and have some input on what is going forward.
Ok, so you are a member of my.amatyc.org and now what?There are two ways that you can actively participate in my.amatyc.org (speaking mostly from the perspective of our Anet). First, you can start a new discussion. Have an issue on your mind? Want to know what others thing about it? That’s the perfect place to start. Second, you can attach new documents to our library. If you find an article that is very helpful or a current event report that you think should be in our library post it!
You are always welcome to reach out to your chair, Ben, instead, but be encouraged to use the site to its full extent. That is what it is there for, and there is nothing more topical than equity in education. If any of the Anets have the potential to really make use of the space, it is us.
Finally, a great point was raised in the executive committee about the real need to reach people beyond the scope of faculty involved in AMATYC. What percent of faculty do we really interact with in AMATYC? How many more people might not even know we exist as a community and a place of support? If you have ideas about how to tackle a larger outreach program, let us know!
