Mission Statement 

The mission of the College of Sciences and Mathematics Diversity Office is to promote diversity and inclusiveness in the sciences and mathematics by attracting, retaining and graduating outstanding minority candidates in the STEM disciplines. Our goals are:

  • To increase the diversity and number of undergraduate and graduate students studying in the biological, chemical, physical and mathematical sciences, and
  • To promote the recruitment and retention of an outstanding, diverse and inclusive faculty.                                                            

 Vision Statement

To celebrate and promote diversity in mathematics and the sciences by increasing access, retention and graduation of outstanding minority candidates in the STEM disciplines and to promote the recruitment and retention of an outstanding, diverse and inclusive faculty. 

Our goal is to offer academic support to underrepresented minority students majoring in sciences and mathematics. The primary goal of this office is to drastically improve the academic performance and consequently reduce the attrition rate of minority students in the sciences and mathematics by providing a “home base” where minority students receive academic support, advice, and counseling.  We hope that our site will be both informative and interesting to you.  We also invite you to stop by our office in Science Center Classrooms Building room 235 whenever you’re visiting Auburn University. 

Our mission is planning, promoting and implementing programs for the recruitment, enrollment, retention, recognition and career planning of undergraduate and graduate students with multicultural backgrounds. The Drop-In Center workshop rooms are the major venue by which we channel our efforts to provide sustained and comprehensive student support to facilitate outstanding academic achievement and leadership development. Programs and initiatives that undergird our efforts include Advising and Counseling Services, Summer Bridge Program, Workshops for Excellence Tutoring, PASS Peer Mentoring, Minority High School Visitation Day, Monthly Forums, and Recruitment Events. 

Our Motto

“We want you to graduate with a quality degree.”

 We are providing an atmosphere for students to become well-rounded students that are involved in academic achievement, leadership activities, community service, summer experiences, and research activities.
