Initial Departmental Climate SurveySurvey completed November 2019; analysis and writing ongoing
In order to learn more about the DEIW perspectives of EEMB graduate students, we distributed a preliminary survey. This survey will help us prioritize DEIW initiatives that are important to the graduate student community.
Graduate Student Peer Mentorship ProgramProgram formed September 2020
As the program gets off the ground, we are focused on creating a space for incoming students to make human connections during pandemic-era grad school. Students will be paired in mentoring "families", with the goal of creating an inclusive and reliable support system.
Alumni of Color NetworkStarted work August 2020
We are working on creating an EEMB alumni network specifically for students of color. This network would help relieve the burden of self-advocacy on students of color, and ease the transition into a workforce that by and large lacks ethic and racial diversity.
