Louis Stokes Midwest Center of Excellence (LSMCE) Conference 

October 2017

The Louis Stokes Midwest Center of Excellence (LSMCE) was created in 2012 to communicate best practices, tools, and information garnered from the Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP) consortium to a broader audience. LSMCE serves as a national hub of information for scholars to access data, models, and funding opportunities in broadening participation of underrepresented minority (URM) students in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). Additionally, the Center will begin assisting 28 Midwestern non-LSAMP schools with developing strategies to improve their URM students’ performance, persistence and success in STEM degree programs and provide opportunities for their faculty and students to participate in STEM activities including workshops/conferences, webinars and research internships.

California Forum for Diversity in Graduate Education

California state university channel islands | november 4, 2017

Each California Forum for Diversity in Graduate Education will bring together approximately 1,000 pre-selected, high-achieving undergraduate and master's students. The students will explore graduate opportunities and resources by participating in numerous workshops conducted throughout the day. Universities and individual graduate programs offering academic master's and/or Ph.D. degrees are welcome to participate in recruitment fairs that will take place concurrently with the other planned activities. Note that these events are for all disciplines except programs in medicine, dentistry, optometry, chiropractic, pharmacy, veterinary science, and law, all of which have their own recruiting networks.
