Plan to attend the
14th Conference on Understanding Interventions
that Broaden Participation in Science Careers
July 14-16, 2022
Lord Baltimore Hotel | Baltimore, Maryland
The annual Understanding Interventions (UI) conferences facilitate the dissemination of research and serve as a venue for training related to STEM interventions. Communities of practitioners, researchers and evaluators interact, network, and exchange experiences and solutions. There are also opportunities for learning from experts outside one’s professional domain about innovations in many forms—theories, methods, tools that could inform interventions with students, faculty, decision makers, and policymakers. These conferences and the UI organization evolved from a 2007 workshop to address the need to mutually inform practice and scholarship, provide venues for training and dissemination of interventions research, and development of a collaborative community of research, evaluation, and practice.
UI held its first Virtual conference in December of 2020 in response to Covid-19 restrictions that forced the cancellation of the original March 2020 in person meeting. Brought out of necessity, the virtual conference introduced a format that provided pre conference availability of symposia, Deeper Dives and Poster presentations. The 14th Annual Understanding Interventions Conference will continue with similar design as we have adopted aspects of the virtual format in hopes of reaching a virtual audience as well as those who attend the conferences in-person through our hybrid design.
The in-person UI conference will feature workshops, plenaries, symposia, deeper dives, posters and colloquia—a new format that allows discourse on relevant issues in broadening participation in STEM. The virtual UI conference will feature live streaming of plenaries, prerecorded symposia with available chat discussion, and virtual poster presentations. All abstracts will be accepted for in-person presentation.
