November 19, 2021 - Author: John Phillips, Vonda Richardson, Richard Montez, Kolia Souza, and Rich Pirog
White-led higher education institutions such as 1862 land grant universities and other public/private universities in the U.S. often have an incredibly rich array of resources, programs, and networks that support the growth and success of their educators (including those in Cooperative Extension), students, and researchers. However, many who work for, study at, or partner with these higher education institutions are less aware of the networks and systems that support the success of educators, students, and researchers at 1994 Land Grant Tribal Colleges and Universities, 1890 Land Grant Universities (historically Black universities established under the second Morrill Act of 1890), and Hispanic Serving Institutions.
