Dr. Andrews Awarded Diversity Research and Scholarship Grant

Dr. Andrews

The Diversity Research and Scholarship Grant program is a collaboration between the Office of the Provost, the Office of Research and the Office of Institutional Diversity. A total of 28 scholars working in a wide range of fields, including anthropology, biology, education, English, geography, veterinary medicine and many others, were awarded grants. The allotted funding was increased from $40,000 to $65,000 based on the number and quality of submissions.

In the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences, associate professor Tessa Andrews and postdoctoral research associate Gretchen King, both in the department of genetics, will assess how STEM faculty think about and use inclusive teaching practices at five institutions. Their ultimate goal is to support STEM faculty in using teaching practices that can benefit students historically underrepresented in STEM.
