ASEE Public Policy Statements

Letter Supporting Scholarly Research in Diversity and Inclusion in STEM Education

March 13, 2018

Over the past year, there has been a proliferation of targeted attacks on scholarly work addressing diversity and inclusion in STEM education, including work in engineering education specifically. Many of these attacks have appeared on conservative outlets and in broader alt-right media and social media networks. When specific faculty members are targeted, they and their colleagues are often subject to harassing and threatening calls, emails, tweets, and more.

ASEE supports our members and all academic researchers in the face of these attacks on academic freedom. Read the full statement here.
