ABOUT

The Underrepresented Minorities in Economics Society exists to promote diversity in the Economics field and to foster opportunities for camaraderie and mentorship among economics undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, and alumni who identify as URM. We welcome all economics majors to join our organization and the specific intent is to foster community among those who identify as URM. All that is required to be considered for membership is to be a declared economics major and a commitment to equal representation within the field. The society is intended to provide an inspiring and supportive space for economics students to connect, while deepening their appreciation and understanding of the field.

Members of the organization will participate in quarterly events such as seminars, discussions, and (eventually) potential field trips focused on life after graduation. The program will also highlight the research done by economics faculty who identify as underrepresented minorities and encourage members to explore involvement in research and quantitative skill-building. Additional plans include connecting students with Economics alumni in order to promote career exploration, networking, and professional development.
