Our mission is to build sustainable, inclusive connections between students, faculty, and professionals in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Our approach is unique in two ways: 1) we devised and apply a model which addresses the development of the whole scientists through academic and psychosocial support combined with career, professional, and leadership development and 2) we use proven methods and our extensive experience in developing many of our nation’s finest scientist and engineers in the mainstream scientific environments. A unique outcome is that we cultivate a diverse science and technology workforce prepared to be leaders and add new dimensions to innovation. We believe a brighter scientific future is on the horizon.
