EARTH 200P: Your Professional Development Practicum

Developing a strong portfolio of skills and tools takes resources and partners. This practicum enables the freedom to explore and develop a specific component of your professional portfolio with instructor support. You will set a professional development goal at the start of the quarter and then build a self-directed set of experiences that engage on-campus resources, professional society opportunities, and/or external partners to explore and develop new skills. Completion will include reflection on the experience, feedback from peers and mentors, and a concrete product that expands your professional ¿toolkit.¿ This practicum is recommended for latter stage graduate students, or following completion of Earth 200A.

EARTH 203: Diversity and Inclusion in the Geosciences

This course will prepare students to address the participation and inclusion challenges uniquely faced in the geosciences. By bringing awareness to specific tools and tactics which improve learning and working environments, we hope to help others develop inclusive environments where diversity is valued and celebrated. Diverse thinking coupled with inclusive practices improves science and team performance. In the past 40 years, the geosciences have had the lowest diversity of all STEM fields within higher education. Using insights from recent literature and perspectives from guest speakers, we will evaluate current practices and identify those that hold promise in improving broader participation and inclusion in the geosciences. Discussions will focus on actions that individuals can take to promote greater inclusion within every level of higher education in the earth sciences.
