The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation awarded $5 million to fund an interdisciplinary, multi-year project to advance anti-racist practices and pedagogy in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine (STEMM). The project brings together faculty, students, community members and Tribal partners to address a lack of awareness of histories of racism in academic disciplines, especially in scientific disciplines, and a lack of diverse representation in STEMM across sectors, from academia to industry. Presenters will share their goals for their participation in HEAL. All three are dedicated to becoming better university partners with sovereign Native Nations on the West coast and in Wisconsin.
