The Washington State University College of Education has awarded four individuals with $1,000 grants as part of its equity and inclusion webinar presentation series.
The four recipients and their winning proposals are:

- Jessica Masterson a Teaching & Learning faculty member at WSU Vancouver and Imran Haider from the Edward R. Murrow College of Communication with their proposal: “Where Are You From?” Interrogating Exclusion in Public Spaces.”
- Bailey Gauthier and Maria Garcia, graduate students who work for WSU ROAR, with their proposal: “Developing Instructional Practices in Diverse Post-Secondary Educational Programs.”
- Kathleen Cowin and Sarah Newcomer, faculty at WSU Tri-Cities, with their proposal: “Collaborative Conversations for Equity and Inclusion in Education.”
The college’s equity and inclusion committee cited the grant recipients as having been instrumental in the college’s efforts to advance diversity and inclusion.
“This series is important because it will provide multiple opportunities for highlighting a range of topics that promote equity and inclusion,” said Eric Johnson, professor of multilingual education, and associate dean of equity & inclusion. “We are excited to showcase the expertise of our WSU colleagues and graduate students to promote equity and inclusion to the broader community.”
