Diversity

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The College of Chemistry plans to build on a foundation laid down by the departments and a series of graduate student programs that have been established in the last several years to grow the College’s diversity program. The College wants to foster a more visible, valued, and broad community working on coordinated projects to advance diversity in STEM fields at all levels. We envision that graduate student participants will carry forward their expertise in DE&I to advocate for change in future STEM leadership positions across academia and industry.
