Welcome to the Harvard University Diversity
in Life Sciences website.
Our objective is the faciliation
and development of new ways to nuture a community of students
in the Life Sciences with varied backgrounds and experience.
We believe that a career in the life science should be a real
and exciting possibility for everybody, and that the demographics
of scientists should reflect those of the wider population. In
our efforts to increase diversity in the Life Sciences at Harvard,
we aim to showcase activities, funding sources, and other resources
available to help female and underrepresented minority students.
the success of any program depends upon the support of the
entire scientific community, we seek to inform faculty about
effective practices for enhancing diversity. Additionally,
we highlight Harvard's outreach programs, which are aimed at
both the pre-college and college level and engage minority students
in life sciences research experiences.
DIVERSITY: The condition of being diverse; composed of distinct or
unique elements or qualities.
