The research experience will be supplemented by an informal student-faculty seminar course, in which students meet on a weekly basis during supper to discuss their research projects with other student participants and faculty. Students also participate in a weekly career discussion luncheon series, in which they learn about the career paths of current minority faculty and graduate students and about many aspects of choosing graduate programs, preparing applications, and preparing for interviews. There are also informal social opportunities for students to meet current minority and majority faculty and graduate students.
