AGEP Banner

The Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP) at Michigan State University (MSU) is a National Science Foundation program that supports recruitment, retention, and graduation of U. S. students in doctoral programs of the natural and social sciences, mathematics, and engineering. The focus of AGEP places special emphasis on a fully inclusive recruitment and development of students from U. S. population groups historically underrepresented in fields of the sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM); and the social, behavioral, and economic (SBE) sciences.

A goal of AGEP is to promote changes that transform U. S. universities to embrace the responsibility of substantially increasing the number of underrepresented U. S. minorities who will enter the professoriate in STEM and SBE disciplines.

Graduate students 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.

We have a series of events throughout the year, including monthly community meetings, Faculty Partnership Visits, a Spring Conference, and student outreach.
