Welcome Graduate Students and Post-docs
The Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP) at Michigan State University (MSU) was started with funding from the National Science Foundation. MSU AGEP supports recruitment, retention, and graduation of underrepresented U. S. minorities in doctoral programs of the natural and social sciences, mathematics, and engineering. Graduate students, post-docs and faculty who participate in building the AGEP Community at MSU will provide a key to changing the culture of U. S. colleges and universities to embrace building world-class STEM and SBE faculties who fully reflect the diversity in race, gender, culture and intellectual talent of the U. S. population. To be in the loop regarding Learning Community Meetings, career opportunities and other astounding events, Join our Mailing List!
The Learning Community is an informal environment where students from varying disciplines can gather, share their research in a 10-minute presentation, or discover that their graduate toils are not unusual. Those in attendance are privy to information regarding fellowships, career opportunities, even summer internships, pertaining to the group. Faculty and assistant deans of The Graduate School are often spotted in the meetings, always receptive to questions and innovative suggestions. Food will be provided! Check out our dates for 2021-2022. To sign-up to give a presentation, click here: bit.ly/29BH1Yk
