Interdisciplinary STEM Graduate Student Learning Communities

By Rose Marie Ward (PI)

This project will develop an interdisciplinary Graduate Student Learning Community (GSLC). In two cohorts, each one year in length, this project will mentor and enhance the skills of STEM graduate students in chemistry and psychology.
