NISE Network is committed to promoting inclusive, equitable, and accessible opportunities for diverse learners to engage in STEM.
By gathering, studying, and sharing evidence about what works best, the Network is continually improving in its efforts to involve all people in learning about and contributing to STEM.
NISE Network and our partners strive to include a diverse audience with regard to geography, dis/ability, gender, race/ethnicity, language and income. Some examples of this work include:
- Practices: using evidence-based practices that support meaningful participation and learning by diverse communities
- Partnerships: collaborating across networks and organizations to ensure broad geographic and demographic participation
- Cognitive and physical accessibility: using Universal Design principles and accessible practices for educational materials and learning experiences
- Cultural relevance and language: using culturally inclusive and sensitive practices and offering materials in languages other than English (NISE Network projects offer many of our materials in Spanish)
