American Evaluation Association's annual meeting in Chicago
On November 12th ISR’s own Alton Williams (Graduate Research Analyst) and Professor Arturo Baiocchi (Faculty Associate) presented at the American Evaluation Association’s annual meeting in Chicago. Their presentation—“Assessing Perceptions of Racial Isolation and Other Institutional Barriers in STEM Evaluation Research”— was based on ISR’s continuing five-year evaluation of the Bridges to Baccalaureate Program at San Francisco State University. The talk highlighted ISR’s strategy for exploring both the individual-level as well as institutional-level impacts of the BRIDGES program, which is part of broader initiative by the National Institute of Health to increase the number of underrepresented minority students pursuing doctorate training in the biomedical sciences. The presentation reviewed how the researchers are using a “critical race theory” lens for conceptualizing the ongoing challenges, as well as the potential sites of success, for these types of targeted interventions. Alton and Arturo are planning to use the presentation to draft an article manuscript to submit to the American Journal of Evaluation in the next year.
Good job Alton and Arturo!
