Evidence shows that educational activities such as active teaching, research discovery and personal mentoring can be used to retain individuals in science majors and careers. Become informed about actions your institution has already taken to eliminate potential barriers to participation and what outcomes were experienced. Identify the people and offices engaged in this work and consider what you might do together to create a diverse and inclusive environment where scientific innovation can flourish. A number of professional journals publish studies on recruitment and retention in educational programs, including Cell Biology Education: Life Sciences, Academic Medicine, and others.
