American Indian Science and Engineering Society

Purpose:
The American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES) is a national organization that is dedicated to increasing minorities such as Native Americans, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and other indigenous peoples of North America in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) majors and careers. The specific mission of the MSU chapter of AISES is to increase and support the Native American population attending MSU in STEM majors. One of our priorities is to have a support system for those Native students that are attending MSU because many struggle with their difficult majors. We have study sessions every other week with food and usually team up with the EMPower mentoring program as well. Since the members of AISES-MSU are in similar majors and have taken many of the same classes, we are able to help each other and create an amazing peer support system. Another thing the club does is local outreach events for kids, such as the Engineer-a-thon, the Museum of the Rockies science fun night, and others. There is also a national AISES conference that we are hoping to send more people from out club to. Overall, our goal is to support Native American’s at Montana State.

PSPP Graduate Journal Club

Purpose:
To foster a community of rigorous research by giving graduate students the opportunity to hone skills in several vital forms of scientific communication: literature, lecture and peer-to-peer Scientific articles are a major form of communication in life sciences research - from experimental results to novel techniques, peer-reviewed journal articles are how researchers keep abreast of their field of interest. Thus, learning to interact with and critique scientific literature is a vital skill for any student hoping to pursue research. The Plant Sciences & Plant Pathology (PSPP) Journal Club provides students an outlet for discussing pertinent journal articles - thus honing such skills. The club is also a chance for busy grad students to meet and raise questions about any relevant graduate student topic - from
the future of plant research and the role of graduate education...to tips for choosing a citation software…an opportunity for the peer-to-peer communication so important to the development of collaborative relationships In addition to regularly scheduled journal discussion meetings – the Journal Club will strive to organize guest speakers – talented researchers from relevant fields - to give presentations on current research topics.
Beyond honing communication skills, Journal Club provides two other valuable experiences: The diversity of research fields being covered by the participating students gives us all the chance to look further than our immediate graduate research topic and may provide us with the opportunity to learn another helpful skill necessary for researchers - seeing the bigger picture! Networking - the Journal Club is a great platform to get to know fellow grad students and at the same time establish a network of future leading scientists. Not to speak of the opportunities established by inviting guest speakers from industry, other universities and countries!
