The science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) Diversity Institute

The Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning
(CIRTL)'s Diversity Institute brings together a critical mass of scholars
to produce materials and resources that aims to reform science,
technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) higher education. The
Institute grows from the idea that students' learning is enhanced when
classes, laboratories, and discussion sections foster engagement of all
students irrespective of race, gender, or socioeconomic background. The
Diversity Institute creates and disseminates resources that will enable
faculty and future faculty to enhance diversity in STEM fields by creating
inclusive classrooms.

This site very good. The layout of the resources and materials wasn't fantastic. I wasn't sure what I was going to find in the sub sites. I did like the sub site for STEM and what courses have been changed to accommodate the diverse audience in STEM classes. The centralization of the diversity websites as well as the centralization of other resources was useful.
