Abstract Title: Polaris: A Grad-Undergrad Mentorship Program
Abstract: Polaris is an undergraduate and graduate student led community at Ohio State University (OSU) dedicated to fostering a more diverse, inclusive, and satisfying experience for nontraditional physics and physics interested students. In this poster we show the need for this program at OSU, particularly stemming from the underrepresentation of women and minorities in B.S. Physics degree earners at OSU. We describe the leadership structure and goals that were developed through leadership retreats. We also describe the grad-undergrad mentorship program, the primary program of Polaris, and future programmatic events in motion.
