Support Services
The UW-Madison STEM diversity network is the online destination for resources related to STEM diversity on campus and beyond. This website is funded by a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and the UW-Madison Chancellor’s office to Ahna Skop at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. This site is a collaboration between Skop, two undergraduates (Olushola Kemi Olukoga & Kaitlin Morse), one graduate student (Jennifer Gilbert), Don Stanley (Life Sciences Communication), Tom Browne (CALS Academic Dean & Chair of CALS Equity and Diversity) and newly retired, Lilian Tong (WISCIENCE). The main goals of the STEM diversity network are to: Catalyze communication and collaboration among students, faculty and staff on the UW-Madison campus in STEM fields. Provide resources and opportunities that allow undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, and scientists to succeed in STEM fields. Provide outreach to the public outside of the UW-Madison campus. Create community in STEM on the UW-Madison campus.
Initiative is not on behalf of a RSO.

While several programs on campus offer support to students, faculty and staff from diverse backgrounds, the STEM Diversity Network is a place designed to help all interested in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers specifically.
This network exists to aid the academic and social advancement of students (undergrad, grad, postdocs) in STEM by providing students with connections to other students, faculty, and resources available to help them succeed.
