Thirty-five attendees participated in the Creating Paths to Grad School in Science event hosted by the Stony Brook Chapter of the Society for Advancement of Hispanics / Chicanos & Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) on Monday, April 28. The event was aimed towards increasing awareness of the mentoring and research opportunities available on campus, to better prepare undergraduate students for science graduate programs. Graduate students made presentations where they each described how their interest in science emerged and their current research areas. The keynote speaker, Dr. David Ferguson (Associate Provost for Diversity and Inclusion & Distinguished Service Professor and Chair, Department of Technology and Society) talked to students about the importance of making the most out of mentoring opportunities. The event culminated in a networking dinner where undergraduate students had the chance to network with graduate students to discuss issues related to research opportunities, graduate school preparation, and identifying mentors.
