Join us for the annual PROMISE Fall Harvest Dinner, 6:00 PM, Friday, November 22, 2013 at the Riggs Alumni Center on College Park’s Campus. This event is open to all graduate students, postdocs, faculty, and staff from any school within the University System of Maryland (http://www.usmd.edu/institutions/) who want to participate in, and support the mission of PROMISE AGEP: Maryland Transformation – “Diversity in STEM Education” – https://promiseagep.wordpress.com/2013/09/18/new-nsf-promise-agep-grant-funded-until-2017-includes-university-system-of-maryland-ccbc-aacc-and-agmus/
PROMISE AGEP: Maryland Transformation will engage the University System of Maryland in a system-wide focus on diversity in STEM graduate education, and will share resources and facilities to provide professional development for participants that might otherwise be limited or non-existent at some of the institutions without the alliance. This state-wide alliance eliminates the “silo-effect” or independent STEM diversity efforts, and it promotes as a core mission the collaboration to expand and connect a community of scholars through the state.
