About Us

The Association for Graduate Student Diversity is a student run organization committed to the development of professional scientists from all cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. AGSD strives to increase diversity, to promote retention and graduation of graduate students in the biomedical sciences and foster professional and career development of our members. AGSD is comprised of seven offices: president, vice-president/treasurer, historian, webmaster, social & community outreach, academic, and career development chairs. Together these offices and committee chairs are focused on serving the graduate students and scientific community here at Baylor College of Medicine. AGSD is under new direction this year and has elected a number of talented, enthusiastic individuals who are focused on the growth and success of the organization. AGSD has a number of events planned for the new academic year including monthly general body meeting open to all graduate students, M.D./Ph.D.s and post-docs. We also welcome postbacs and technicians with an interest in obtaining a Ph.D.

We are very excited for our upcoming events and we hope that you can join us this year.
