Diversity Community Inclusion Equity Innovation Discovery is in our DNA.
The Center for Materials Interfaces in Research & Applications (¡MIRA!) at Northern Arizona University (NAU) is a disruptive force in STEM, removing barriers between the worlds of STEM and cultural identities that often serve to limit the participation of historically marginalized communities.
¡MIRA!, which translates to Look! in Spanish, is an explicit recognition of the multicultural demographics of our state, with a message that deliberately welcomes historically marginalized populations to enter education and career paths in Materials Science and STEM.
