P.I Podcast – The Center Build

Dive into the inspiring world of the NSF BROADENING PARTICIPATION RESEARCH CENTER (BPRC) through the P.I. Podcast! This unique audio experience goes beyond the lab reports and delves into the hearts and minds of the center’s leading voices: the Principal Investigators.

Each episode brings you up close and personal with these visionary researchers. You’ll gain fresh insights into their groundbreaking work, exploring how they use a “psychological strengths orientation” to understand the development of African American student identity and motivation in STEM.

But the P.I. Podcast is more than just academic exploration. It’s about celebrating the passion, dedication, and lived experiences of those who are actively dismantling barriers and fostering greater diversity in STEM fields. By sharing their stories, challenges, and triumphs, the P.I.s offer invaluable guidance and inspiration to educators, parents, students, and anyone committed to creating a more equitable and inclusive learning environment.

Join us on this journey of discovery, where we unpack the power of mentorship, delve into the complexities of identity formation, and explore the innovative strategies that are paving the way for a brighter future in STEM. The P.I. Podcast is more than just a podcast; it’s a call to action, a conversation around how we can all contribute to building a truly inclusive STEM ecosystem where every individual has the chance to thrive.

Process Sessions allow lab associates to engage in critical conversations around research concepts and impact.
