Diversity and inclusion are considered components of all the OPA programs and initiatives. We aim to have a domestic postdoctoral workforce that reflects the diversity of the population in the US and a diverse international postdoctoral population.

Researcher, Mentor, and Teacher: The goal of the this program is to strengthen postdocs’ competencies in mentoring and teaching while increasing the number of underrepresented minority (URM) students who complete a bachelor’s degree in STEM majors and are competitive for Ph.D. programs.

 Postdoctoral Diversity Recruitment Initiative is an effort to facilitate the successful recruitment of underrepresented postdoctoral trainees to Ohio State. We aim to increase the visibility of participating researchers to populations of underrepresented minority PhD students who are seeking postdoctoral opportunities.

Ohio State ADVANCE: Gender Initiatives in STEMM promotes the recruitment, retention, and advancement of women faculty in the STEMM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine) disciplines at The Ohio State University





The Ohio State University is a part of the BTAA Professorial Advancement Initiative (PAI).
