This second session of the three-part webinar series explores approaches and models to build equitable partnerships supporting the delivery of cultural/community responsive nutrition interventions and equity. Highlighted are a 1890 university utilizing a diversity database in their campaign efforts to increase healthy food access by accurately depicting the communities they serve; and a 1862 university with a multicultural SNAP-Ed program that has unique challenges and leverages relationship building in direct education program development/implementation.
The first session of this 3-part webinar series considers the impact funding disparities within the land-grant university system and among statewide implementing agencies, cultural awareness and integration, community food access, and so on have on partnership development and offers ideas and models for more equitable SNAP-Ed partnerships. Specifically, the first session explores how SNAP-Ed funding is determined at the federal level, the latest SNAP-Ed community needs assessment tool seeking to increase equity, tribal colleges and universities' role in SNAP-Ed and policy recommendations, and perspectives on how funding decisions impact statewide collaboration and considerations for increasing equitable collaboration within states.
White-led higher education institutions such as 1862 land grant universities and other public/private universities in the U.S. often have an incredibly rich array of resources, programs, and networks that support the growth and success of their educators (including those in Cooperative Extension), students, and researchers. However, many who work for, study at, or partner with these higher education institutions are less aware of the networks and systems that support the success of educators, students, and researchers at 1994 Land Grant Tribal Colleges and Universities, 1890 Land Grant Universities (historically Black universities established under the second Morrill Act of 1890), and Hispanic Serving Institutions.
