Recruiting Diverse Populations

Our goals are to 1) focus on improving the “pipeline” challenge in STEM for historically marginalized graduate students and postdocs; and 2) to recruit and retain individuals from groups that have traditionally been underrepresented in academia and the sciences, including individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic backgrounds, who have disabilities, who identify as LGBTQIA+, who are veterans, or who were first-generation college students or Pell-eligible.

About the Event

Selected candidates were invited to a virtual event October 14-15, 2021. Participants were matched with faculty at each institution for virtual informational interviews, which took place October 14-31.
