Rutgers Diversity in Chemistry

 We believe there is immense value in bringing a diverse range of voices to the table. Diversity leads to fresh perspectives for addressing and solving challenges, and inclusion makes stronger and more successful research teams.

We are called to integrate the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion into all aspects of our university.

The Student Diversity Committee wants your input for selecting a diverse set of speakers who can discuss science AND non-science topics with students. Follow the link below to submit a nominee name for our next event!
