EDU 2: Diversity at CENS
At CENS, our diversity initiatives continue to gain momentum. We have developed several programs designed to increase the number of diverse students pursuing advanced degrees in CENS related fields, particularly women, underrepresented minorities, and US citizens. To that end, we have developed a number of key projects to help establish a pipeline to graduate school and CENS research. Our Women@CENS program is designed to promote gender equity by focusing on our summer internship program and research promising practices of undergraduate research programs nationally. We have also established collaboration with other STCs, partnering institutions and local colleges and organizations that focus on serving underrepresented students. These programs are designed not only to help us provide services and opportunities that support gender equity and underrepresented minorities but also to identify promising diversity practices that can be broadly shared.
