Trying to sort out all the STEM and STEM related departments, graduate programs , at #UCDavis

Well, I was in a meeting yesterday for the UC Davis ADVANCE program.  This program is an NSF funded project to improve presence of women and underrepresented minorities on the faculty in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).  So I decided to see - how many departments at UC Davis might participate in such an initiative.  And, well, wow.  I knew there were a lot of STEM or STEM-related departments at UC Davis but I did not know there were this many.

Here is a list I compiled of UC Davis STEM or STEM-related Departments.  I included medical departments here since many people in such departments do medical/science research.  But clearly this is a broad definition of STEM.  But nevertheless, this gives some picture of the scope of science and medicine and related departments at UC Davis.

Vet School departments in Yellow
Med School departments in Red
College of Biological Sciences Departments are In Green
College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences in Orange
College of Letters and Science in Light Blue
College of Engineering in Grey

  2. Anesthesiology
  3. Animal Science
  4. Anthropology
  5. Applied Science
  6. Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine

  1. I'm really glad to see this happening on campus. I just wanted to add that Science and Technology Studies recently had a graduate "designated emphasis" approved.

    - Roberta Millstein, Philosophy and STS @ UC Davis
