SCSC: Sloan Center for Systemic Change

The Sloan Centers for Systemic Change initiative is supported by the Alfred Sloan foundation and chose two-year seed grants to ten institutions including Purdue.

“The grantees will develop plans and begin implementation of evidence-based policies and practices to improve the recruitment, retention, and graduation of a diverse community of students in physical science and engineering doctoral program. The goal is the systemic reform of structures that disproportionately burden Black, Indigenous, and Latina/o/e individuals in graduate education, barriers that can affect other students as well.”

The current seed grant for two years is for setting up the structure to run the center. Further funds will include support for items like graduate fellowships.

Departmental Representatives: Ken Ritchie and Martin Kruczenski
