GRAD-MAP Collaborative Seminar Series

Tue. Nov 16, 2021 3:30pm - 5:00pm

Information session about the GRAD-MAP program and networking for students interested in graduate study in STEM fields. 


Graduate Resources Advancing Diversity with Maryland Astronomy and Physics (GRAD-MAP) strives to build strong, sustainable ties betwen the University of Maryland and mid-Atlantic minority-serving institutions (MSIs). We connect promising MSI students with our graduate and faculty researchers at the University of Maryland. GRAD-MAP has three key goals: 1) Improve the representation of, and climate for, underrepresented minorities in physics and astronomy, particularly at UMD; 2) Build a diverse, collaborative community amongst the physics and astronomy faculty, researchers, and students at UMD and mid-Atlantic HBCUs, MSIs, and community colleges; and 3) Provide graduate students with experience mentoring a diverse group of students and experience developing and implementing a diversity initiative, preparing them to practice allyship and be agents of change throughout their careers. In doing so, we will significantly improve the diversity of Physics and Astronomy graduate students and serve as an example for future initiatives throughout the United States. We are supported by the Physics and Astronomy departments at the University of Maryland, College Park. GRAD-MAP is funded by the University of Maryland College of Computer, Mathematical, & Natural Sciences and the Departments of Astronomy and Physics, and the NSF CareerPIRE, and AAG programs.
