Series: AGU/AGI Heads and Chairs

The AGU Heads and Chairs program and the American Geosciences Institute are pleased to be offering a free online webinar and discussion about best practices to recruit and retain students. Recent research has shown us that informing students about the altruistic potential of geoscience careers can be an effective strategy to broaden recruitment and engagement of students from historically marginalized communities into the geosciences.

Meet authors Elizabeth M. Griffith (Associate Professor) and W. Ashley Griffith (Associate Professor) and Steven Lower (Director and Professor) from The Ohio State University School of Geosciences who will discuss how they used this research to improve their recruitment and retention practices to increase the participation of students from communities that have been historically marginalized in the geosciences.
