The Organization for UnderRepresented Students (OURS) is focused on providing a safe space for Ph.D. students from underrepresented backgrounds to come together and discuss the unique challenges we face. OURS hosts a lunch every other month where students come together to share their struggles as underrepresented students, celebrate success, and discuss solutions that would make the pursuit of a Ph.D. more equitable.
