Week of Diversity in STEM

During the week of February 5-9, 2024, events and activities will be presented that highlight and celebrate the many, often unacknowledged, ways that people from diverse walks of life contribute to STEM disciplines (i.e., science, technology, engineering, and mathematics).  Our goal is to make diversity in STEM more visible within the community in hopes of inspiring greater appreciation and recognition of these contributions.

In conjunction with Diversity in STEM Week, the Biology Department is sponsoring the Diversity in STEM Art Contest!  Cash prizes will be awarded!
