Opening Remarks and Keynote Address

Interfolio CEO Andrew Rosen opens the 2021 Interfolio Virtual Summit. Then, Dr. Ebony O. McGee from Vanderbilt University discusses advancing equity in higher STEM education for our keynote address “Beyond Recruiting…Retaining Underrepresented Minoritized Faculty & Graduate Students: First Understand the Barriers, then Dismantle Them.” Her research and work explores “the social, material, and health costs of academic achievement and problematizing traditional forms of success in higher education, with an unapologetic focus on Black folk in these places and spaces.”

About Dr. Ebony O. McGee

As a professor of diversity and STEM education at Vanderbilt University’s Peabody College, I investigate what it means to be racially marginalized while minoritized in the context of learning and achieving in STEM higher education and in the STEM professions. I study in particular the racialized experiences and racial stereotypes that adversely affect the education and career trajectories of underrepresented groups of color. This involves exploring the social, material, and health costs of academic achievement and problematizing traditional forms of success in higher education, with an unapologetic focus on Black folk in these places and spaces. My National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER grant investigates how marginalization undercuts success in STEM through psychological stress, interrupted STEM career trajectories, impostor phenomenon, and other debilitating race-related trauma for Asian, Black, Indigenous, and Latinx doctoral students. 


Education is my second career; I left a career in electrical engineering to earn a PhD in mathematics education from the University of Illinois at Chicago, a Spencer Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Chicago, and a NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship at Northwestern University. With funding from seven NSF grants, I cofounded the Explorations in Diversifying Engineering Faculty Initiative or EDEFI (pronounced “edify”). I also cofounded the Institute in Critical Quantitative and Mixed Methodologies Training for Underrepresented Scholars (ICQCM), which aims to be a go-to resource for the development of quantitative and mixed-methods skillsets that challenge simplistic quantifications of race and marginalization. ICQCM receives support from the NSF, The Spencer Foundation, and the W. T. Grant Foundation.

My first solo-authored book is entitled Black, Brown, Bruised: How Racialized STEM Education Stifles Innovation.

My research has been featured in prominent media outlets, including The Atlantic, Diverse Issues in Higher Education, Nature Human Behaviour, The Chronicle of Higher Education, Higher Education Today, NPR’s Codeswitch, The Hechinger Report, Christian Science Monitor, Huffington Post, US News & World Report, Inside Higher Education, Tennessean, Washington Monthly, and The UK Voice Online.

Documenting Personnel Processes and Increasing User Adoption

A digital platform for Review, Promotion & Promotion can offer powerful tools to streamline processes and reduce the burden on faculty and staff. However, before you even create a template, you must have a strong understanding of the existing processes. Using Arizona State University’s experience configuring 16 distinct workflows across 23 colleges, this session will explore best practices for defining, documenting, and translating these workflows into RPT. Expect to leave with practical considerations to increase functionality and user (faculty and staff) adoption.

The New Power University: The Social Purpose of Higher Education in the 21st Century

We are delighted to welcome Professor Jonathan Grant in conversation with Andrew Rosen, CEO of Interfolio, as they talk about putting social responsibility at the heart of the academic mission. 

This interview will be based on themes explored in Professor Grant’s Amazon best-seller where he questions the social purpose of higher education and argues that in the 21st century universities must become advocates of the policy and political issues that matter to their communities. 

The New Power University is available from all major online bookstores including The Book Depository, which provides free worldwide delivery.

Jonathan Grant examines the trends and urges the shedding of old shibboleths in order to embrace a new future. Insightful and engaging, this book will spur and shape the urgent debates learning communities need to have and resolve to avoid being left behind.”
—Julia Gillard, Former Australian Prime Minister and Minister for Education; Chair-elect of the Wellcome Trust
