Student Research & Engagement

The Health Equity Institute works closely with students to provide hands on research training on grants, works-in-progress, and through our student training activities.

A core activity is the Health Equity Student Scholars Program. The annual spring program pairs students in a research experience with HEI faculty from our cross-college community of scholars. Each student works with a faculty mentor on a faculty's research and also attends the professional development seminar hosted by the Health Equity Institute to advance student research.  HEI holds a HEI Research Showcase each May to feature students' oral or poster research to the health equity community.
