Building Relationships to Diversify Graduate Education

Founded in 2019 by UNC-CH doctoral student Taylor Y. Dismuke, BRDGE Alliance (a flagship program for Pyramid Development Group, INC) was designed to be a STEM mentoring program with a goal to bridge the gap​ between underrepresented minorities and the STEM community.

The current focus of BRDGE Alliance is to develop undergraduate students at Historically Black colleges and universities by creating dynamic relationships with black graduate students at research institutions.

With the aim to improve diversity in STEM we will use application of peer mentorship, community, and personal and professional development activities to develop underrepresented students in STEM.

A mentor empowers a person to see a possible future, and believe it can be obtained.
