Marty Baylor, Associate Professor of Physics
Marty Baylor, Chair and Professor of Physics and Astronomy, is becoming a national leader in promoting inclusion, diversity, and equity (IDE) in physics and STEM as a whole. A recent grant will allow Baylor to set up a national program to strengthen IDE efforts in physics classrooms across the country.
“Thinking about diversity and inclusion is just part of who I am and what I’ve been doing. It’s not something we as physicists are trained to do and it’s not something that’s easy or comfortable. But STEM is a human endeavor, and IDE work is naturally part of what it means to be a physicist, and what it means to be a scientist.”
