The Nanomedicine Academy of Minority Serving Institutions is a collaborative model of higher education that provides state-of-the-art knowledge to under-served minority populations.
The Academy is dedicated to attracting students from racially and ethnically diverse populations, creating a interdisciplinary learning environment suitable for a diverse student body, and piloting new strategies for student learning & collaboration. The unique model of partnership allows not only recruitment and education of students from diverse backgrounds, but to bring geographically distant students together in new ways so that they can learn and benefit from each others’ diversity.
The Academy has created 5 graduate courses in nanomedicine that are taught simultaneously to students at 5 partner institutions and established a cross-institutional online network that enables students to learn from expert instructors as well as peers throughout the nation. Today, the courses are attended by over 90 students per semester spanning 18 different STEM disciplines.
