The next AWESOM SAG meeting will be held on Friday, October 20, 2023, from 11:00a to 12:00p ET.

We are soliciting members and input for five working groups for this SAG:

  • Obtaining an overview of the landscape of astrophysics at Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs), Community Colleges (CCs), Primarily Undergraduate Institutions (PUIs), etc.
  • Obtaining an overview of existing/ongoing NASA initiatives
  • Opportunities for research/funding at MSIs, CCs, PUIs, etc.
  • Student training programs (including bridge programs)
  • Best practices for diversity, equity, and inclusion in NASA astrophysics (e.g., selection and recruitment)

If interested in contributing to one of these WGs, please join us at the meeting or put your name down on this sheet, along with any ideas you may have.

We hope interested colleagues will join for this and future discussions; if you can't make this time, please feel free to reach out to
