Diversity Research and Mentorship Reception

The annual Diversity Research and Mentorship Reception 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. This year there will be an undergraduate and graduate student and postdoctoral faculty poster session, lunch, faculty, postdoctoral scholar, and student panel, and table fair for campus resources.

This event is sponsored by the Graduate College, the Office of Diversity Initiatives, the Intersection, the Graduate and Professional Student Association, the Office of Undergraduate Research, the Office of Community Engagement, the College of Liberal Arts, and the Center for Academic Enrichment & Outreach.

Poster Session

If you are an undergraduate or graduate student or postdoctoral scholar and you would like to participate in the Diversity Research and Mentorship Reception Poster Session please complete this brief registration form by Wednesday, September 19. The focus of the poster session is on highlighting undergraduate and graduate students who are from diverse backgrounds and/or who conduct research on diversity.

The poster presentation should include a poster (no larger than 36 in X 48 in). This event is non-competitive. Students are encouraged to use a poster they have already created for a university-level and/or professional conference.

Faculty and Student Panel

This year the panel will consist of several UNLV faculty members and their graduate students who conduct research on diversity. Each pair will have approximately 6 minutes to address:

  • Briefly discuss one aspect of your current (or recent) research project on diversity.
  • Explain what are the findings of this research project.
  • Discuss how you disseminate your ideas beyond your field of study.
  • Provide your best advice to students from diverse backgrounds about research and mentorship in the academy.

Participating in the Diversity Research and Mentorship Reception

This event allows undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, and faculty/staff from diverse backgrounds and/or who are conducting research on diversity to network. In addition, attendees are introduced to many of the faculty, administrators, and organizations on campus that support diversity.
