Underrepresented Minorities in Economics Society

Underrepresented Minorities in Economics Society is intended to provide an inspiring and supportive space for URM students to connect, while deepening their appreciation and understanding of the field.

ABOUT

The society is intended to provide an inspiring and supportive space for URM students to connect, while deepening their appreciation and understanding of the field. We are developing this group to promote diversity in the Economics field and to foster opportunities for camaraderie and mentorship among undergraduate minority students, graduate students, faculty, and alumni. Members of the organization will participate in quarterly events such as seminars, discussions, and (eventually) potential field trips focused on life after graduation. The program will also highlight the research done by economics faculty who identify as underrepresented minorities and encourage members to explore involvement in research and quantitative skill-building. Additional plans include connecting students with Economics alumni in order to promote career exploration, networking, and professional development.

TO APPLY

The application is now open through 8:00pm on October 23 2020
