The Center for the Advancement of STEM Leadership (CASL) uses the cultural authority of Historically Black Colleges and Universities and their legacy of liberatory leadership to empower the next generation of STEM academic leaders–from all professorial and administrative levels–to envision, inspire, and transform institutional climates for maximally broadening the participation of African Americans in STEM.
CASL expands the perspective through which traditional leadership theories, policies and practices related to broadening participation in STEM can be examined and explained.
CASL integrates the conditions that shape the unique histories of our emerging HBCU leaders–whether favoring or unfavoring–into the intellectual knowledge base that informs undergraduate STEM reform.
This poster will introduce you to the work of CASL.
