NAUFWP is committed to the deconstruction of barriers to underrepresented groups in the fish and wildlife profession. NAUFWP recently complete a survey to: 1) document the gender and BIPOC demographics of students and faculty in university fish and wildlife programs, 2) identify programs that have established specific natural resources diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) courses, 3) identify programs with DEI learning outcomes in the curricula, and 4) document programs that have implemented DEI criteria in promotion and tenure guidelines. We will have a short (30 min) presentation of our results followed by a 30 min open discussion of strategies for improving DEI efforts in fish and wildlife programs at universities.
