Honoring the Whole Student

The Honoring the Whole Student Workbook aims to develop space for Native American students in STEM by supporting their complex identities. It was supported through a grant from the National Science Foundation.

Honoring the Whole Student Survey

The Honoring the Whole Student workbook was made possible by support from the National Science Foundation. The motivation for this workbook is to provide Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) faculty the support and tools needed to reflect on their instructional, mentorship, and teaching practices—individually or within a community of learners.

The goal is for STEM faculty to foster a deeper understanding of how to more dynamically support Native American students. The activities in this workbook are intended to generate conversation and reflection about the challenges faced by, and worldviews of, Native American STEM students.

Read about the authors, the motivation for the workbook and considerations for use (including licensing and attribution details). The workbook is also available as a PDF download. There is also a resource list for further learning.
