This grant supports a budding partnership between Trinity Washington University, one of a handful of institutions in the country to be classified as both a Predominantly Black Institution (PBI) and a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI), and Johns Hopkins University (JHU), which seeks to provide research experiences spanning one academic year and one summer. Specifically, grant funds will be used to establish a learning community for both Trinity and Hopkins faculty and trainees focused on inclusive teaching and mentoring practices; establish a course-based undergraduate research experience for 10 Trinity “SURE Scholars,” including a curricular component to introduce students to research, a credit-bearing course on research excellence, and a 10-week summer research experience at JHU; and establish a layered mentoring structure, including faculty from both institutions and graduate students from JHU.
