The two virtual mentoring workshops were held on Oct. 26, 2021. The workshops were for graduate student mentors at the University of Arizona, and their scholar mentees who are undergraduate students at Diné College. They all are part of the Bridge to STEAM program at the University of Arizona’s Research, Innovation & Impact (RII), research services. Diné College is a partner institution with the BLaST program, and, as a public tribal college, serves many Indigenous students.
