Diversity Outreach

Diversity Outreach
The Division of Biology and Biomedical Sciences is committed to building a dynamic community of scholars.  In addition to encouraging academic collaborations between scientists of varied backgrounds, our faculty and staff are also actively engaged in activities to identify and recruit talented students to the Division.  By bringing together people of different perspectives and talents, our summer research programs, enrich the learning experience, intellectual exchange and pursuit of scientific discovery for all members of the academic community.

Our office supports cultural and educational programs.  In addition, we work to deepen understanding across various groups and provide support to the Association of Black Biomedical Graduate Students (ABBGS), Connections, and the Graduate Association of Latin American Students (GALAS). 

To foster a rich and robust biomedical research community — both at our institution and beyond we seek opportunities by traveling to different campuses to present workshops and seminars to students and faculty about graduate education at Washington University in St. Louis.  If you are interested in hosting a campus visit please contact Andrew Richards, Director of Recruitment at (314) 362-7743 or toll-free at 1-800-852-9074 or dbbs-recruitment@email.wustl.edu​.
