Microbiology & Immunology Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) News

The Department of Microbiology & Immunology nabs DEI Innovation Grant from the Office of the Provost

The Department's DEI Committee, chaired by Professor Malini Raghavan, is very pleased to announce that the committee has received an Innovation Grant from the Office of the Provost for the project, "Creation of a career platform to match students with relevant role-models for career development." The main goal of this project is to  bring underrepresented minority scientists from various career paths to campus for networking with PIBS students. We are very gratified that the review committee recognized the importance and significance of this project.

The Department is very proud of the fact that our DEI Committee has been quite active and successful in our efforts to increase diversity, equity and inclusion in our department, in the school and in the larger community. Go blue!
