Join us for the fifth annual Diversity Research and Mentorship Reception. This event annually showcases undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, and faculty/staff who are from diverse backgrounds and/or whose research is on diversity. Diversity is defined broadly and includes, but is not limited to, race, ethnicity, socio-economic status, age, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, ideologies, and physical abilities.
