A number of CELEST programs are targeted at increasing opportunities for groups underrepresented in science to participate in its innovative curriculum and research initiatives including graduate fellowships, summer internships for faculty from minority-serving institutions, a ten-week summer program for undergraduates from underrepresented groups to work in CELEST faculty labs, and a summer workshop to introduce undergraduates to the interplay of modeling and experimental techniques in cognitive neuroscience.
The Diversity Outreach Committee consults with the CELEST Board, making suggestions and assisting recruitment for all of CELEST’s efforts to build a center whose membership reflects our larger society and whose outputs benefit all.
