Diversity Objectives and Deliverables

Diversity Optimal Outcome:

Measurable impact on the participation of underrepresented groups in sciences and technology, particularly in accelerator science.

Diversity Strategic Roadmap

Objective 1: Train graduate students from underrepresented groups.

  • Deliverable: Graduate students from underrepresented groups engaged in CBB research (Fall 2026).

Objective 2: Provide opportunities for a diverse group of undergraduates to conduct research in accelerator science.

  • Deliverable: Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) programs that engage six diverse undergraduates annually and provide them with a valued research experience (Fall 2026).

Objective 3: Stimulate a broad pipeline of middle-school students interested in STEM fields.

  • Deliverable: Middle school educational outreach modules that engage a diverse student cohort and change student attitudes toward science, improve teacher satisfaction and confidence, and have a positive impact on the graduate student network formation (Fall 2026).
