UCR received a NSF grant to initiate "FORWARD" (Faculty Organization foR Women's Advancement, Recognition and Development) in support of increasing diversity in STEM fields.
UCR is also a member of Partnership for Adaptation, Implementation and Dissemination (PAID) Together the five UC campuses in southern California have formed a Partnership for Faculty Equity and Diversity. This Partnership builds on and augments the experience of the NSF/UCI ADVANCE Institutional Transformation Program for gender equity now in its sixth year. It represents an impressive level of cooperation among the nation’s leading public research universities for a common challenge: the recruitment and advancement of women and under-represented minority faculty at UC campuses.
For student support in preparing future faculty diversity, UCR provides a number of programs to mentor and support students from underrepresented groups to succeed in all areas, with an emphasis on STEM fields. The programs include:
UCR BRITE (Bioengineering Research Institute for Technical Excellence); Education Dedicated to Graduating Everyone (EDGE) Academy;GAANN: Graduate Assistance in Areas of National Need (U.S. Department of Education); TRiO Programs: Upward Bound Classic and Upward Bound Oasis;California Mathematics and Science Teacher Initiative (CMST);TRiO Programs: Educational Talent Search and Mentoring Summer Research Internship Program (MSRIP).
