On a part-time appointment with PACE and a part-time appointment with the University’s Office of the Vice President for Research and Development, Iris will co-direct the University’s program titled "Research Opportunities in Science for Native Americans"
(ROSNA). Her appointment to this position will institutionalize PACE’s efforts to connect American Indian scientists and students with science faculty at The University of Montana-Missoula.
Project PACE has initiated outreach efforts with Montana State University (MSU) in Bozeman with the help of an MSU Outreach Liaison and a faculty member from MSU-Bozeman who serves on PACE's External Advisory Committee. Recently, PACE Principle Investigator Kukuk visited MSU to discuss potential collaboration with women scientists there and to provide an overview of Project PACE's accomplishments thus far. Common interests, such as the state's work-family policies, came to light at these meetings. Since then, Project PACE has shared policy development information with MSU and discussed potential development of a faculty/staff sick-leave fund on their campus.
