Initiatives

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’.

Podcast 

Student-run and operated, the CEMS DEI Podcast will navigate race and ethnicity in STEM and challenge 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.
