NSF-AGEP at Binghamton University

Increasing the diversity of graduate students in science, technology, engineering, and math

Graduate-level diversity scholars in the STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) find Binghamton University a place to thrive.

For more than a decade, NSF-AGEP has provided support for Binghamton's outreach to diversity scholars. NSF-AGEP promotes the recruitment, mentoring, and retention of minority students in STEM doctoral programs, and encourages STEM graduates to pursue careers in higher education.

NSF-AGEP supports a variety of scholarly activities at Binghamton University:

The NSF-AGEP program is now in its evaluation phase, and plans are underway to reapply for funding to continue supporting its activities at Binghamton University.

What is NSF-AGEP?

NSF-AGEP stands for National Science Foundation-Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate. NSF funds the AGEP program.

The primary goals of AGEP are to (a) significantly increase the number of underrepresented minorities (i.e., African Americans, Hispanics, American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians or other Pacific Islanders) obtaining graduate degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), and (b) enhance the preparation of underrepresented minorities for faculty positions in academia.

Binghamton University participates in SUNY AGEP along with the three other SUNY university centers (Stony Brook, Albany and Buffalo).
