Mindset Scholars Network Awards Grant to Dr. Sade Bonilla for Ethnic Studies Work

Assistant Profesor in Higher Education, Dr. Sade Bonilla, has received a $120,000 grant through the Mindset Scholars Network. In collaboration with colleagues, Dr. Bonilla will investigate the longer-term effects of enrolling in a year-long high school ethnic studies. The curriculum focuses on promoting positive academic identities and belongingness in schools. Understanding whether student outcomes persist over time is critical for educational policy and practice particularly as many school districts seek to implement their own ethnic studies courses.
