SynergIE in Natural Sciences
Building Towards Inclusive Excellence in STEM
The UHD SynergIE Program seeks to develop inclusive excellence in STEM through (1) faculty development leading to new approaches of inclusive education; (2) student & family engagement to build belongingness to UHD and the scientific enterprise; (3) and collaboration with UHD colleagues engaged in programs that promote the development of university-wide inclusive excellence. Inclusive excellence in education celebrates & nurtures human diversity; works to dismantle barriers that restrict student access & success; strives to provide equitable access to educational resources; and integrates these actions to develop an inclusive university.
