The IU-MSI STEM Initiative is an academic and research partnership between Indiana University and multiple Minority Serving Institutions (MSI) that promotes and develops science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) disciplines.
The IU-MSI STEM Initiative's vision is to establish long-term, mutually beneficial, highly interactive relationships between Indiana University and the Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs), which result in:
- Increasing numbers of underrepresented minority graduate students, scholars and professionals in the STEM disciplines.
- Increased research capacity through faculty collaborations.
- Expanded research funding opportunities.
- Enriched academic experiences through exchanges of faculty.
