Attendees will participate in several sessions on community building. One session will focus on pedagogy and feature a web-based tool to find and share resources for programs that address community building for underrepresented minority STEM students. Attendees will have the opportunity to work together in groups to develop plans, consider how they can collaborate, and suggest ways that the alliance can support them in their efforts. Attendees are encouraged to bring a laptop or tablet computer.

Attendees will also participate in a joint session with faculty, staff, professionals, and students to share perspectives on community building. The workshop will conclude with break-out sessions offering more in-depth discussions.
