The STEM Center would like to congratulate our collaborator, Dr. Adriana Martinez! Dr. Martinez, associate professor in the College of Arts and Sciences’ Departments of Geography and Geographic Information Sciences and Environmental Sciences, is one of 12 nationwide members selected to participate in the inaugural cohort of a two-year fellowship by the AGU LANDInG Academy (Leadership Academy and Network for Diversity and Inclusion in the Geosciences).
“I’m proud to be representing SIUE, as it exemplifies the teacher-scholar model,” said Martinez. “So often the focus is on research universities, but at schools like SIUE, faculty have richer interactions with students both in the classroom and through the research we conduct with students. I can bring our perspective to the rest of the cohort while also enacting direct change to the student experience at SIUE because I, and the faculty in my departments, will directly benefit from new DEI skills and knowledge gained.”
