Education Outreach and Diversity
Nevada EPSCoR seeks to expand opportunities for a more diverse faculty, staff and student population, which is essential for the success of our state’s and nation’s scientific and technical well-being. Diversity brings different perspectives, skill sets, and helps broaden our vision. We recognize that geographic and societal challenges exist that require pragmatic solutions with achievable and measureable goals. NV EPSCoR strives to enhance diversity in all elements of EPSCoR programs while increasing participation of underrepresented minorities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines.
Nevada EPSCoR Education, Outreach & Diversity (EOD) supports interdisciplinary and collaborative teaching, research and service activities. These activities involve partnerships across disciplines and education in Nevada.
Nevada EPSCoR EOD brings together professionals from the Sciences, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Education to share expertise and knowledge from their fields. These collaborations support research and development efforts that provide pathways into careers in the disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and education (Science & Mathematics Teaching K-20).
