The Student Leadership Committee was formed in spring 2020 in an effort to center student voices in the development and implementation of the HHMI Inclusive Excellence grant initiatives at Oberlin. The committee is comprised of six student leaders of diverse backgrounds dedicated to improving the equity and inclusion of STEM at Oberlin.
Through the establishment of the Student Leadership Committee, the HHMI team at Oberlin sought to:
1. Provide students with insight into the background, rationale and efforts of the grant as they exist within the context of Oberlin College.
2. Hear directly and regularly from students regarding their experiences of equity in educational environments at Oberlin College.
3. Open an avenue through which student recommendations and experiences can be used to guide and focus the visioning processes of the upcoming Departmental Action and Reflection Teams.
4. Better align with the ongoing goal of centering and prioritizing student voices in institutional change.
