Justification
  • Need to train sufficient numbers of
    underrepresented minority students in CALS and
    SMPH
  • Successful models on campus
  • Engineering GERS
  • L S C-GRS
  • Education EdGRS

8
Mission of SciMed GRS
  • To sustain and enhance recruitment and retention
    of Underrepresented Minority (URM) students to
    graduate programs in CALS and SMPH at UW-Madison

9
Improve Recruiting of URM Students
  • SciMed GRS attendance at national undergraduate
    minority focused conferences
  • Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources, and
    related Sciences (MANRRS)
  • Society for Advancement of Native Americans,
    Chicanos in Sciences (SACNAS)
  • National McNair Research Conference
  • Annual Biomedical Research Conference for
    Minority Students (ABRCMS)

10
Improve Recruiting of URM Students
  • SciMed GRS works to enhance and facilitate
    recruiting efforts of URM in the CALS and SMPH
    through centralized communication and
    coordination of recruiting opportunities.
  • Distributes recruiting announcements, deadlines,
    and requests for program materials to share at
    recruiting conferences.

11
Improve Retention of URM Students Establish
Community through Career Development Social
Activities
  • Spring 2007 Events with continuing students
    Coffee Hours, Student Dinner, Picnic Potluck
