Dedicated to promoting the equitable participation of Black and Latino men in STEM


A4 Black and Latino Men @ Tandon Initiative

At Tandon, our mission includes being one of the leading educators of Black and Latino STEM scholars and industry professionals in the nation and we aim to support every step of their journeys. The Black and Latino Men @ Tandon (BLMT) Initiative resides in this space, seeking to create an academic environment that supports the self-actualization of Black and Latino men and promotes their sustained presence in academia.
