Astronomy and Physics Departments Invited to Apply to P&A SEA Change

ImageIs your department interested in doing a deep dive to better understand itself regarding diversity and inclusion? Does your department want to undertake systemic change related to diversity, equity, and inclusion, but may not know where to start?

The Physics and Astronomy (P&A) STEMM Equity Achievement (SEA) Change Departmental Program is recruiting for its third cohort! P&A SEA Change is a collaboration among many physics and astronomy professional societies, including the American Astronomical Society and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Postsecondary education departments work through a comprehensive self-assessment of policies, practices, culture, climate, and outcomes that informs a 5-year action plan. Departments then apply for a Bronze award; if awarded, they will need to complete their 5-year plan. See the P&A SEA Change website for more information on the program.

Physics and astronomy postsecondary education departments in the United States or US territories are invited to apply to join the third P&A SEA Change cohort; the deadline to apply is 22 November 2023.

Apply to join P&A SEA Change Cohort

Successful applicant departments will be notified of their acceptance to the cohort by the end of 2023. If you have any questions, please email Dr. Alexis V. Knaub, Director of P&A SEA Change.
