This week our team and the Rutgers SACNAS Chapter are proud to be active participants at the National Diversity in STEM (NDiSTEM) Conference the week of Oct. 25-29. Sponsored by SACNAS (Society Advancing Chicanos/Hispanics & Native Americans in Science), NDiSTEM is the largest multidisciplinary and multicultural STEM diversity event in the country.
At the conference (virtual this year), over 5000 undergraduate students through faculty benefit from cutting-edge research presentations, professional development and networking opportunities, and motivational keynote speakers. This year, 2021 RISE alumni Mickayla Bacorn, Jarett Reyes, and Manuela Velez are presenting posters on their research (if you are registered to the conference, you can view their presentations by clicking their names). We are proud of the work they've achieved all year!
Our team is also hosting a virtual booth at the Graduate School Expo Hall. Our representatives will meet with student attendees to promote graduate and summer research opportunities at Rutgers, helping fulfill our institutional priority “to recruit, retain, and develop a diverse community.” If you're attending the conference, feel free to stop by and say hi.
