Alliance for Diversity
in Science & Engineering:
Preparing for Excellence in Research
Our mission at ADSE is to increase the participation of underrepresented groups in academia, industry, and government. ADSE supports, organizes, and oversees local, graduate student-run organizations that reach out to students and scientists of all ages and backgrounds.
ADSE aims to form a supportive environment for Women, Latinos, African-Americans, Native Americans, LGBTQIA persons, and any other member of an underrepresented group in STEM.
We hope to develop a strong foundation for research-focused students intent on continuing their education in graduate school through shadowing graduate students at doctorate-granting institutions, graduate school panels featuring underrepresented students and STEM professionals, presentations by visiting speakers with a Q&A session, and conferences focused on undergraduate and graduate student research.
We believe in promoting STEM Education in the chapter's local community by
How can I join?
Undergraduate students from any branch of science and engineering may seek membership without regards to disability, race, gender, or sexual orientation/identity.
