UC Irvine funds 19 projects to advance equity amid COVID-19

UCI sought out projects that “explore the meaning(s) of the pandemic from a broad cross section of fields, disciplines, methodologies or theoretical perspectives,” wrote Dr. Douglas M. Haynes, chief diversity officer and vice chancellor for equity, diversity and inclusion in his call for project proposals. … Next spring, winners will come together for a forum to present their research. “I love my work being able to be in a broader community,” said assistant professor of education Dr. Constance Iloh, a grant winner.
