Idaho Diversity Network
As part of our efforts in supporting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) in Idaho, Idaho EPSCoR established the Idaho Diversity Network (formerly known as Idaho STEM Higher Education Network). The Network fosters communication across campuses to encourage the formation and dissemination of new ideas, values, and learning, and provides leadership to carry out integrative activities. The Network involves Idaho’s three public universities and 2 and 4 year colleges and assists in creating sustainable partnerships, and strengthening recruitment and retention efforts, particularly for underrepresented minorities, women, and persons with disabilities.
The Idaho Diversity Network holds at least three statewide meetings each year to discuss STEM/diversity initiatives (see Meetings for additional information).
Funding for this project is provided by NSF / Idaho EPSCoR, Award No. IIA-1301792
