UF joins national alliance to increase STEM faculty diversity
November 1, 2019
In her three years as an engineering student, Lauren Wonicker-Cook barely had female professors. Now that UF has joined a national alliance to increase STEM faculty diversity, the 21-year-old UF electrical engineering junior, said she hopes that will change. UF is joining 19 other universities this year in an alliance to increase diversity in STEM faculty. “Aspire: The National Alliance for Inclusive & Diverse STEM Faculty” is led by the Association of Public and Land Grant Universities (APLU) and the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning.
