Multicultural Alliances


The Multicultural Alliances (MA) section within the NIFA Science and Education Resource Development (SERD) unit manages programs and activities that specifically target historically black land-grant universities (1890 institutions), land-grant tribal colleges (1994 institutions), Alaska native-serving, native Hawaiian-serving, and Hispanic-serving institutions. MA programs are designed to build research, extension, and education capacity at these institutions and increase their competitiveness and representation in agency and departmental programs in the food and agricultural sciences. Additionally, MA supports programs at other partner institutions that serve minority communities.
