Diversity Initiatives

The Nelson Institute strives for an inclusive community of scholars and encourages applications from individuals regardless of race, national origin, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender, political affiliation, or economic class.

We invite individuals from groups historically underrepresented in environmental arenas to apply to our undergraduate summer research program or our various graduate degree-granting programs and certificates, depending upon what stage they are at in their academic careers.

For more information about our programs and academic opportunities, please contact the Nelson Institute's minority/disadvantaged coordinator, Jim Miller, (608) 263-4373.
