The meeting I had this afternoon was funded by NSF, it is a working group with members of the IUSE and TCUs. The goal of our monthly meetings are to build relationships between TCUs.
We aim to gather information to distill and co-create recommendations for improving student success in environmental data science. Krystal Tsosie asked us to break down "Environmental Data Science", while also thinking about "Indigenous Science."
This conversation brought up many thoughts about how we can foster student success. We are each thinking about the ways that Environmental Science Data Science in tribal communities can improve the lives of tribal members.
