The American Geophysical Union began a Bridge Program in 2019. It was initiated to “develop, adopt, and share inclusive practices for recruiting, admitting and retaining women and underrepresented minorities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics graduate programs.”
Fourteen Bridge Partner Institutions were selected for the program because they demonstrated that they will “provide a supportive, inclusive and nurturing environment for students”. These include Georgia State University, Department of Geosciences; Lehigh University, Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences; University of Chicago, Department of the Geophysical Sciences; and University of Wisconsin–Madison, Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences.
