Working to enhance and expand research and creative opportunities for women and minorities at Montana State University

This website highlights awards, activities, events, and involvement and funding opportunities for women and minorities at Montana State University. Also find numerous news and article links. Please feel free to send us any information for and/or your comments regarding the website.

While enhancing diversity on a college campus is a broad topic, we try to identify and seek more opportunities for and about women and minorities in grant-funded research and outreach programs.

Our goals include increasing the recruitment and retention of women and minorities in tenure-track lines and in graduate programs. Another is making changes designed to get more women and minorities into mainstream research and creative activities at MSU. Some options include slower career paces to accommodate family responsibilities or more flexible schedules that might help women progress at the same level as men.
