DEI Programs and Activities
- National Research Mentoring Network training on ‘Culturally Aware Mentoring” A national network, focused on implementing and disseminating innovative, evidence-based best practices to improve mentoring relationships at institutions across the country. They connect highly knowledgeable and skilled mentors with motivated and diverse mentees, ranging from undergraduate students to early-career faculty, and facilitate long-term, culturally responsive interactions between them.
- Graduate Program participation in ENDURE: NIH Blueprint Enhancing Neuroscience Diversity through Undergraduate Research Education Experiences aims to raise interest and opportunities in neuroscience research for individuals who are typically underrepresented in the field. The goal is to provide such individuals with training at the undergraduate level, so that they are prepared to enter and successfully complete neuroscience Ph.D. programs.
- Neuroscience Graduate Program Bootcamp Session on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. View video from the session.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Pillars
Our strategic goals are grounded in the pillars set forth by the Baylor College of Medicine’s Office of Community Engagement & Health Equity, in the areas of recruitment and onboarding, retention and advancement, and climate of inclusion and engagement in research, training and education.
