The Institute of Diversity Sciences is a multidisciplinary unit that brings together faculty and students from across UMass and the Five College Consortium in order to:
- Promote equity-inspired research discoveries to improve access and opportunity
- Nurture the success of diverse students to grow the next generation of scientists, engineers, and technologists in the nation
- Connect scientific research to social impact through public engagement and outreach in order to serve local, national, and international communities
Faculty and students in our Institute use STEM to promote equity in health and learning outcomes and mitigate the impact of climate change on communities. See how we are reaching these goals.
