The notion that people understand the intricacies of the systems they intend to engage with prior to experiencing them is a bit far-fetched. Undergraduate students need guidance on the GRE and finding research labs. Graduate students need support on salary negotiations and post-doc interviews. Above all, however, individuals who are traditionally under-represented in academic and STEM fields need to see themselves represented.

STEM Routes workshops occur once a month during the Fall and Spring semesters. Each session focuses on a specific aspect of advancing and preparing your STEM career; attend which ever workshops stand out to you! Though only several mentors or guest speakers will present, many of our graduate mentors from a variety of STEM departments at CU are present to engage with you and answer specific questions. (hint: this is a great time to find a grad mentor in your field!)
