This workshop has already occurred.

This workshop is the second face-to-face meeting of the SAGE 2YC Faculty Change Agents. Workshop participants will learn more about the project, each other, the leaders, and the research and evaluation component of the work that lies ahead. The program will focus on aspects of the following topics: supporting the success of all students, broadening participation, promoting professional pathways of students within the geosciences, and engaging your partners. The Change Agent teams will spend time working together on their action plans. Travel days for Change Agents are June 14 and June 18.

An administrator from each campus involved in this project will be invited to attend the administrators workshop which will start with a reception, dinner, and evening program on June 15 with the Change Agents and conclude after the workshop program on June 16. The program for administrators on June 16 will include sessions with invited speakers as well as time to work with the Change Agents from their institution on their action plans. Administrators are welcome to stay for dinner and overnight on June 16.

This workshop is part of the SAGE 2YC: Faculty as Change Agents professional development program, and is sponsored by the National Association of Geoscience Teachers and the NAGT GEO2YC Division with funding provided by grants from the National Science Foundation - Division of Undergraduate Education.
