Office for Diversity in Science Training

KU/Haskell Partnership - The Office for Diversity in Science Training coordinates the management of underrepresented student programs at the University of Kansas and Haskell Indian Nations University.

Supporting Underrepresented Students

We strive for an environment where everyone pursuing science education and training at the University of Kansas is valued. Where every individual is able to thrive, succeed and pursue opportunities that allow them to be their very best selves. To achieving this vision, the Office for Diversity in Science Training provides a supportive community with skill-building, academic advising, mentoring, and support to pursue research for individuals from groups historically underserved by STEM fields.

The Peer Led Undergraduate Supplements (PLUS) offers small group sessions to bridge gaps between teaching and learning. PLUS is open to all students enrolled in courses for which sessions are held. Those who regularly attend this free academic support activity perform better than the class average.
