STEM Diversity & Outreach

The STEM Diversity and Outreach office aims to increase the participation of students in research that are underrepresented in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). 

To accomplish our goal - we mentor, advocate, and introduce students to hands-on research career opportunities. We provide support services to programs that cultivate environments where people are valued and recognized. Our focus is on High-Impact Practices in higher education that increase the attraction, retention, and graduation of historically underserved populations.

We provide community outreach support for faculty who seek to broaden their research impact.

We foster collaborative partnerships with industry stakeholders, national support groups and engage with the local and regional community in strategic initiatives that serve to benefit society.
