Alliance for Diversity in Science and Engineering

Young Researchers Conference:

January 28th - 30th, 2021

ADSE is creating an equitable, diverse, and inclusive research workforce drawn from a national fabric of students and researchers from community college through graduate school.

This year, as part of its new mission, ADSE will also be hosting a virtual panel of diverse scientists who started their paths in STEM at community/junior colleges. They will be addressing questions about how students from these institutions can further their education, and offer tips on how to navigate academia through the lens of a community/junior college student.
