University of Montana (spectrUM Discovery Area)

Log Number: ARPML-250872-OMLS-22

The University of Montana’s spectrUM Discovery Area will hire a diversity and inclusion program manager and provide trainings to staff and partners to establish an inclusive learning environment for all in its new home at the Missoula Public Library. This project responds to the need for a well-trained team to engage Missoula’s diverse audiences and will build the capacity of spectrUM and its partner organizations to serve the public, including people experiencing homelessness, people of color, Indigenous people, and LGBTQ people. By embedding free, equitable, inclusive programs in its vibrant community gathering space, spectrUM and its partners will serve as a place where people of all income levels and backgrounds can gather, learn, and experience STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) together as communities recover from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
