Ben Wiggins, UW Biology Manager of Program Operations, is the Director of the Science Teaching Experience Program for Upcoming PhDs (STEP-UP). STEP-UP is a branch of the STEP Program, a University of Washington program that focuses on training the next generation of educators, including graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. The STEP Program was recently featured by the Association for Women in Science (AWIS) in the Spring issue of AWIS Magazine, a publication “written by and for women in STEM and allies.” Ben is quoted in this feature, stating that "STEP-UP...has huge potential to change how generations of students are brought into science careers and knowledge."
