CEMS Grad Mentorship program 

Starting in the Fall of 2020, each incoming first-year graduate student will be paired with one or more current graduate students to serve as mentors to get them acclimated to the department and build connections. Students have the option of being paired based on any combination of identity, research group, future career goals, or interests, and hobbies. 

If you are interested in joining or learning more about the program, please contact us.

Weekly Digest

In accordance with CEMS goals to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion at the university, the CEMS SOAR Education & Evaluation Team shares resources on a weekly basis. These include educational opportunities, department events, and humanitarian fundraisers to give students and faculty ways to ‘Learn’, ‘Act’, and ‘Give’.


Student-run and operated, the Annealing STEM is CEMS DEI Podcast that navigates race and ethnicity in STEM and challenges norms through compelling yet straightforward conversations. We seek to spread awareness about the cultures represented within CEMS and to provide a safe outlet for the many voices in our department to share their experiences.

It is now live!! Look for us on Spotify, Amazon Music, Google, Apple Podcasts, or Stitcher
