With 61 recorded eruptions since 1983, Hawaii’s Mount Kīlauea may hold answers to one of humankind’s most pressing problems — global warming. Research Assistant Mark Spychala (center in the photo above) and University of Houston atmospheric scientists Alex Kotsakis (left) and James Flynn (right) spent a week traversing the volcano in February, gathering data that could help scientists solve this existential mystery.

On a Tuesday afternoon in October, Genevia Kanu ’19 was studying in the library when her phone buzzed with an incoming text. The message was from Micah Evans, the fund development manager at the Austin nonprofit Six Square — Austin’s Black Cultural District.

“Put this on your résumé: You just won $20,000!” Evans wrote. “We’ll celebrate in the office tomorrow.”

A giant grin spread across Kanu’s face. Her grant application to local foundation A Glimmer of Hope had been an assignment for her Grant Writing course. But it was also a real proposal that, if successful, would fund a summer program that matched emerging artists with experienced mentors. Now that program would become a reality, thanks to her hard work.

Even with her impeccable résumé, Amy Ontai '17 says she still occasionally feels like an imposter at Yale. “It’s tough. There are a lot of people around me who are smarter and more well-read than I am,” she says. “But one of the most important things my college experience taught me is that I do belong here. It helped me realize that being a minority woman at Yale is not only a great accomplishment for me but for minority women in STEM everywhere.”
