Has the institution been formally recognized for leadership in diversity, equity, and/or inclusion during the previous three years by a national or international program? :

A brief description of the diversity, equity, and/or inclusion recognition:

STEMM Equity Achievement (SEA) Change Bronze Award from the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

The Bronze award recognizes:

- In-depth, data-rich self-assessment of institutional makeup (STEMM faculty and students), policies, culture, and climate using evidence-based analytical methods, in a disaggregated fashion whenever possible. The self-assessment should provide insights into gender, race/ethnicity, and other factors that have typically been the targets of bias, as well as their intersectionality
- Identification of “data gaps” or other gaps in institutional knowledge and description of methods that will be used to collect missing information
- Identification of significant barriers related to bias, equity, and inclusion
- Development of an action plan with definitive steps to address these issues
