ucALGARY CIDE

Chemists for Inclusivity, Diversity & Equity

LATEST NEWS - STEM UNITY

We are now accepting applications for the STEM Unity Experience!

This program is championed by Alejandro J. Cuellar De Lucio and will introduce undergraduates to research in academia and industry. Aimed at inclusivity, retention, and empowerment, it supports first-gen, low-income, non-traditional, transfer and underrepresented STEM students. Addressing GPA limitations, the initiative provides hands-on lab experiences, emphasizing practical skills and problem-solving.  The program, grounded in the benefits of diversity, promotes inclusivity in internships and recognizes neurodivergence and diverse work situations, contributing to a more equitable and successful STEM community.
