Office for Diversity and Academic Success in the Sciences (ODASIS)

The Office for Diversity and Academic Success in the Sciences has a threefold mission to:

  • increase the numbers of Hispanic, African-American, Native American, and EOF students majoring in the sciences by providing a more supportive environment;
  • improve retention rates and enhance their levels of academic achievement;
  • increase their entry into graduate or professional schools or in their chosen fields in the workforce.

The ODASIS offers several programs to further its mission. The Success in Sciences (SIS) Programprovides academic advising, career counseling, motivational workshops, and assistance in gaining enriching educational experiences. An important program component is a tutorial project, cosponsored by Rutgers College, which gives students cocurricular support in key math and science courses.

The Biomedical Careers Program (BCP), offered jointly by Rutgers-New Brunswick/Piscataway and the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School (UMDNJ-RWJMS), is a summer enrichment program. Participants take science courses, attend seminars, gain experience at a health care facility, and undertake research with a faculty mentor.

The ACCESS-MED Programprovides academic and other support to students applying to any medical or dental school. Of special note is their opportunity also to gain early admission to UMDNJ-RWJMS during their senior year and to begin medical school courses while completing their undergraduate degrees. The ACCESS-MED Program is a consortial venture involving Rutgers, UMDNJ-RWJMS, and Seton Hall University.
