Our mission help stem departments broaden participation in graduate school professoriate

We are a well funded

faculty driven cooperative

providing mentoring and $

support for STEM students

in a growing multi cultural scientific community….

“Our” Mission: Help STEM Departments Broaden Participation in Graduate School  Professoriate

So why should rank file faculty care about diversity and the cdi

We know its all about faculty buy in and mentoring efforts…..

SO: Why Should Rank & File Faculty Care about Diversity and the CDI ?

Excerpts from the “road show”

Educate faculty (and administrators) regarding contemporary diversity issues, and promote grass-roots involvement

Why Should Rank & File Faculty Care ? If you agree to “take care” = competent mentor

  • Provide RA support for underrepresented PhD candidates – includes conference travel / relocation

  • Provide summer support for underep undergraduates interested in graduate school: SMART + REU (AY)

  • Provide grant writing support for large agency proposals
