Grants to USA nonprofit colleges and universities for initiatives that build capacity to engage diverse students in undergraduate science programs. Submitting an intent to apply is the first step in the application process. Recipient institutions will join a national learning community to foster student engagement from all backgrounds, especially those students who belong to groups underrepresented in science.
Schools awarded grants in this competition will join the Inclusive Excellence community. Each grantee college or university will:
- Develop an understanding of its institutional context and define what “inclusive excellence” means to the institution;
- Identify the institutional barriers to inclusion and equity;
- Support serious efforts to engage all faculty in making meaningful contributions to the institution’s growth in capacity for inclusion;
- Build a context-specific theory of change with measurable milestones, establish meaningful methods to assess progress, and use evidence to continuously inform program design and implementation;
- Continuously reflect on how the activities supported by the grant influence institutional values, rewards systems, the campus environment, and progress toward genuine capacity building;
- Actively participate in the Inclusive Excellence learning community.
This initiative challenges institutions to begin with faculty learning and then to apply that learning to a specific challenge. In this competition, the proposer will select one of three challenges on which to focus, based on the priority their institution has identified. These three challenges emerge from what is being learned by the present Inclusive Excellence community and represent areas that will benefit from further attention. Challenge areas include:
- Meaningful evaluation of effective and inclusive teaching
- The content of the introductory science experience
- Effective partnerships between two- and four-year institutions
For more information on the three challenge areas, see the Program Announcement: https://www.hhmi.org/sites/default/files/programs/inclusive/ie3-program-announcement-final.pdf#page=5
Adopting an inclusive excellence stance requires the commitment of the whole institution. Among the several ways by which the school can demonstrate its commitment, here are three:
- Alignment with current programs.
- Selection of the HHMI program director.
- Sharing the financial responsibility
