Holly Cho is a Researcher at the STEM Research Center. Her interests lie at the intersection of STEM education and social justice - motivated by the belief that inclusion is a fundamental right, and that equity and justice should be intrinsic to good pedagogical practice. She is particularly interested in creating institutional change in the higher education space, and is committed to helping college and university educators translate research into practice.

In addition to her research and evaluation portfolio, Holly serves as the Program Coordinator for the HHMI-funded InclusiveExcellence@OSU, a fellowship program for STEM faculty who seek to integrate inclusion and equity into their teaching practice.

Holly received her M.S. degrees in Cell and Molecular Biology and Life Sciences Communication from the University of Madison-Wisconsin.
