The Alliance for Visible Diversity in Science is a collective of individuals with diverse views, joined by their commitment to increase participation of underrepresented minorities in the sciences. Their mission is to increase racial and ethnic equity within the research programs at OHSU by recruiting, retaining, and most importantly, supporting PEER (People Excluded based on Ethnicity and Race) graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, staff, and faculty members. Membership is always open to OHSU members, including students!
Serves employees and students by striving to create a community of inclusion, where students from historically underrepresented populations can thrive. CDI works on a high level with individual programs and departments, but also works directly with students via recruiting fairs and various diverse student interest groups.
