The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences/National Institutes of Health and the American Association for Cancer Research initiated the « NIEHS/AACR Task Force on the Advancement of Minorities in Science » to address the issues of recruitment, participation, retention, and advancement of historically underrepresented minorities in the biomedical sciences.
The goal of the Task Force was to establish a model program, national in scope and significance, to increase the number of historically underrepresented minorities who earn a doctorate and excel professionally in the biomedical sciences.
To this end, the model program will :
seek to promote systemic change in educational institutions from precollege through graduate school ;
introduce effective models of diversity training for faculty and students from precollege through university ;
promote collaborative learning, leadership skills, and team building in science ;
focus on the professional development of teachers ;
depend on the commitment and collaboration of financial and philosophical partners for its implementation.
This document represents the vision for the model program, developed by an eight-member subcommittee charged with representing and documenting the concerns and opinions of the Task Force as a whole.
