Health Equity Institute Partnerships

We are pleased to have partnered across campus with College Deans and Academic departments to seed faculty and student engagement in Health Equity.


Campus Community Building for Research & Scholarship

The Science, Technology and Society Studies (STS) Hub has been an active research community since 2015 at HEI. The Hub was founded by the co-leadership of Laura Mamo (PH), Martha Kenney (WGS), and former postdoctoral scholar Ugo Edu (now at UCLA) as a social science-humanities collaboration for STS research. 


An NSF ADVANCE grant, SF State Transforms ( was funded in 2020 in a partnership among the College of Science and Engineering and the Health Equity Institute. SF State Transforms leads faculty equity programs designed to address structural, systemic, and institutional change.
