Of the funding, $400,000 from the Lumina Foundation will support the establishment of eight new TRHT centers; $247,339 from the Trellis Foundation will support four new centers in Texas; $50,000 from Wiley Education Services will support one new center; and $80,000 from ETS will support the establishment of two new TRHT Campus Centers in New Jersey.

“AAC&U is grateful to these funders for their commitment to, and investment in, racial equity and healing on our campuses and in our communities,” said AAC&U President Dr. Lynn Pasquerella. “We are thrilled by this opportunity to expand the network of TRHT Campus Centers and to broaden the impact of this vital work.”
