When Does One Become A Scientist?

Project Summary

Out of a sample size of 495 students that completed the qualitative questions, only 39% of students view scientists as learners. If students view scientists as learners, they view scientists as wanting to gain additional information. Scientists have a passion for learning and want to solve problems. They make mistakes and learn from them. This is described in a non-systematic way.

Students that describe scientists as learners have significantly
higher self-efficacy, self-determination, science career motivation, sense of belonging, and science identity.

Out of a sample size of 495 students that completed the
qualitative questions, 17% of students view scientists as experts. If students view scientists as experts, they describe scientists as knowing a lot of information. Scientists who are experts tend to be focused on one area and are an expert in that area. Scientists are the best at what they do and are intelligent.

Students who describe scientists as experts have a significantly
lower sense of belonging in science and a lower science identity.

Female Faculty Forum

Did you know that, as of July 1, 2019 there are less than 50 fully-tenured female professors at Utah Valley University?

We believe that female representation in the classroom is critical to UVU’s mission of student success and inclusion.

To address the issue of low female faculty retention at UVU, the Women’s Success Center, Office of Teaching and Learning and the Utah Women in Higher Education network invite you to the Female Faculty Forum.

This forum is a series of informal events with the goal to guide and inspire more female faculty at UVU to complete the retention, tenure and promotion process.
