A brief description of the institution’s programs that help increase the diversity of higher education faculty :

We currently have opportunities such as NSERC, CICR, and other projects where professors work with/ mentor students one on one.
Undergraduate Student Research Awards (USRA) are meant to stimulate students interest in research in the natural sciences and engineering. They are also meant to encourage students to undertake graduate studies and pursue a research career in these fields. NSERC encourages qualified Aboriginal students to apply to this program as well.
Our KCVS (Kings Center for Visualization in Science) (http://www.kcvs.ca/site/who.html) has Dr Brian Martin and Dr Peter Mahaffy as co-directors of the centre, working with an interdisciplinary team of undergraduate researchers.
The work of the centre has been funded by The King's University College, NSERC through a Centres for Research in Youth Science Teaching Learning (CRYSTAL-Alberta) grant and the USRA program, SSHRC, and through research partnerships in the United States (NSF), and Australia (ARC).

The King's Center for Visualization in Science is energized by the talent and enthusiasm of undergraduate students from a wide range of disciplines!
