FIRST RATE

Resources and Time for Exploration

FIRST is a five-year collaboration with strong emphasis on faculty development to enhance inclusion in STEM at Davidson.  As FIRST’s largest element, FIRST RATE will support individual STEM faculty members to infuse inclusive pedagogies throughout all levels and disciplines of Davidson’s STEM curriculum. Specifically, FIRST RATE provides time (course release), community (a cohort), and assistance (FIRST Fellow; professional development fund) for each of Davidson’s permanent STEM faculty members to expand their knowledge of diversity, inclusivity, equity, and social justice to implement specific interventions, strategies, and/or topics in new and existing STEM courses sustainable and lasting ways.
