Stephanie Knezz

Northwestern University
Assistant Professor of Instruction
Evanston, IL
Stephanie Knezz is an Assistant Professor of Instruction and General Chemistry Co-Lab Director in the Department of Chemistry at Northwestern University. She teaches the General Chemistry Lab course that accompanies the main-sequence introductory chemistry course (serving ~500 undergraduates/term) and the analogous course through Northwestern’s School of Professional Studies (serving a wide array of non-traditional students with diverse academic backgrounds). Stephanie studied Chemistry at Butler University (BS 2011) before earning her PhD in Chemistry at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2016. During her time at UW-Madison, Stephanie began her involvement in CIRTL (Center for the Integration of Teaching, Research, and Learning) and has been an active member of the CIRTL community ever since. In the Fall of 2018, she co-instructed a synchronous online course through CIRTL, entitled Equity in STEM for All Genders, aimed at promoting gender bias awareness and collaboratively developing strategies to mitigate this type of bias in STEM contexts. In all her courses, Stephanie focuses on promoting identity affirmation and self-efficacy among historically underrepresented students in STEM to promote persistence in their college careers and beyond.
