Mission

AMBR's mission can be summarized as "Access. Support. Outreach." which addresses our primary objectives. "Access" exemplifies our goal to ensure that minorities or individuals that traditionally lack access to resources have access to higher education and are actively recruited to GSBS. "Support" exemplifies our goal to ensure that these students at GSBS have a supportive community and access to resources that cater to their needs and assist them in their educational, academic, and career endeavors. "Outreach" exemplifies our goal to work with other GSBS organizations in serving our local community.
We emphasize that our definition of "minority" is any individual who identifies as one in the aforementioned social categories of gender, race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, national origin, socioeconomic status, disability or handicap etc or are statistically underrepresented in the field of biomedical research.
