ARE Launches New Diversity and Inclusion in Research, Education, and Career Training (DIRECT) Program

"A new ARE program led by associate professor of teaching Kristin Kiesel and associate professor Steve Boucher aims to enhance and expand pathways to the professoriate for historically underrepresented populations.

With five years of funding from the University of California’s Hispanic Serving Institution (UC-HSI) Doctoral Diversity Initiative Project, the Diversity and Inclusion in Research, Education, and Career Training (DIRECT) program will launch in 2021. Working to expose, encourage, prepare, and involve Hispanic and other African Americans/Blacks, Hispanic/Latinx, and Native Americans/Alaskan Natives (AHN) students in agricultural economics, program activities aim to develop multi-level mentee-mentor networks that build community and provide mutually beneficial experiential learning and research opportunities for all program participants."
