MINORITY PARTICIPATION PROGRAM (MPP) ADVISORY COMMITTEE

Function

The MPP Advisory Committee assists the Education and Outreach staff in its efforts to attract ethnic minority students to careers in the geosciences and to award scholarships to decrease the financial needs of Blacks/African-Americans, Native Americans, and Hispanics/Latinos, who are U.S. citizens with proven scholastic ability and with the motivation to ensure the likelihood of future success. The advisory committee makes recommendations about the program to the Executive Committee and keeps it informed on geoscience minority matters in general.

Responsibilities

  • Establish goals and objectives for attracting and retaining Blacks/African-Americans, Native Americans, and Hispanics/Latinos, who are U.S. citizens, into the geosciences.

  • Develop a continuing program of raising funds exclusively for scholarships from industry, professional societies, and individuals.

  • Recommend recipients of AGI minority geoscience scholarships, which are given to undergraduate and graduate students studying within the framework of the geoscience discipline or Earth science education.

  • Recommend specific plans that will increase career opportunities and that will lead to significantly greater participation by under-represented ethnic minorities in the geosciences. These plans should include means to make minority geoscience professionals highly visible to potential minority geoscientists, and to show that the geoscience disciplines are worthy of their attention and best efforts.

  • Provide advisory counseling services to ethnic minority students, universities, colleges, employers, and professional societies on minority matters.
