This lab naturally weaves in and through the mission of Marquette. It affirms our commitment to build and support a more diverse university community that will help us to achieve excellence by promoting a culture of learning, appreciation, and understanding. In this case…cross-cultural understanding. The lab builds connections not just between faculty and underrepresented students, but connects them both to the Indigenous community in what we know will be diverse ways. Thank you to those community members that are here today.
