Science, Technology, Education, and Health

The cluster on inequality in science, technology, education, and health will bring together faculty researching access and retention of under-represented groups in STEM education in the K-12 sector through higher education, including the professoriate; examining the impacts of education, technology, and medical policy and funding structures; and studying the history and cultures of STEM fields. Moreover, it will convene scholars investigating how poverty, racism, social segregation, exposure to violence, poor nutrition, and job stress, along with environmental conditions, shape health.
