Using Site Visits to Improve Departmental Climate

10/10/2014; 56 minutes

Site visits, sponsored by professional associations in STEM, are a potentially powerful tool departments might use to investigate the work climate, to identify the factors contributing to "climate issues," and to institutionalize practical approaches that improve the climate for minorities and women. Panelists will review the site visit process and its potential for generating inclusive and innovative work environments for STEM faculty.
