NSF INCLUDES Shared Measures Logo

The NSF INCLUDES Shared Measures platform presents findings and learnings around national effort to broaden participation (BP) in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education and careers. By documenting the achievements and progress of Network members and allied efforts, this platform showcases the community’s achievements and raises the visibility of NSF INCLUDES and other STEM BP initiatives. It also documents projects’ efforts to use the design elements of collaborative infrastructure and provides an inventory of broadening participation, institutional transformation, and system change indicators.

These initial results represent the work of the eight cohort 1 and cohort 2 NSF INCLUDES Alliances. Going forward, the platform will serve as a dynamic repository of data on the collective efforts of Network members and allied efforts to increase diversity, equity, and inclusion in STEM. This information will be especially useful for Network members who want to inform their own work by learning about the practices, partners, resources, and tools of other STEM BP initiatives.

Measuring Collective Progress

The NSF INCLUDES Shared Measures platform examines data in three critical areas for STEM broadening participation initiatives:

Reaching diverse populations

catalogue the characteristics of participants and educators served.

Developing a cohesive collaborative infrastructure

explore progress in the development of collaborative infrastructure in NSF INCLUDES-funded projects.

Promoting equity in STEM academic and career pathways

inventory the goals and outcomes defined and pursued by the broadening participation community.

The results are intended for use by Network members and other key stakeholders (e.g., program directors at NSF and other federal agencies, Congressional staff, policy makers and practitioners, and entities looking to create similar STEM BP initiatives). By documenting the collective progress of Network members, the site showcases the community’s achievements, raises the public profile of NSF INCLUDES and other STEM BP initiatives, and documents the reach and influence of the NSF INCLUDES approach.
