Union has been awarded a grant from the renowned Howard Hughes Medical Institute to strengthen the study and teaching of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) for all of its students.
The HHMI Inclusive Excellence 3 (IE3) initiative challenges U.S. colleges and universities “to substantially and sustainably build their capacity for student belonging, especially for those who have been historically excluded from the sciences.”
A nonprofit focused on research and philanthropy to advance science and education, HHMI will contribute $505,000 over six years to support the College’s efforts.
