Minority Graduate Students (MGS) in STEM serves as a community for underrepresented graduate students (African American, Native American, and latinx US citizens) and allies. We value self-confidence, holistic (mental, spiritual, and physical) health, and diversity. Our mission is to ensure underrepresented students effectively present themselves in any space through understanding fundamental skills beneficial to succeeding as a graduate student and professional. We aim to build a community for underrepresented students that builds confidence through faculty mentorship and skill gap filling. This group should also serve to build a network among faculty and staff who have similar interests in increasing and retaining diversity.
This is a graduate student driven organization.
