The NSF INCLUDES Coordination Hub is pleased to share that the name of the INCLUDES initiative has been changed to honor the trailblazing U.S. Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson. Technically, the change occurred in August when the CHIPS and Science Act was signed into law. The new name is NSF’s Eddie Bernice Johnson INCLUDES Initiative and will be referred to this way on first mention, with INCLUDES or the INCLUDES Initiative on further mention. For example:
- NSF’s Eddie Bernice Johnson INCLUDES Initiative (the entire effort, inclusive of the funding itself, the INCLUDES-funded projects, the INCLUDES Alliances, the National Network, and the Coordination Hub), then INCLUDES;
- NSF’s Eddie Bernice Johnson INCLUDES National Network (inclusive of the INCLUDES-funded projects, which the Alliances are part of, and the members of the National Network), then the INCLUDES National Network; and
- NSF’s Eddie Bernice Johnson INCLUDES Coordination Hub.
