ASLO Multicultural Program

The 35th annual ASLO Multicultural Program (ASLOMP) will take place at OSM2024 in New Orleans. This successful program has brought over 1,400 diverse undergraduate and graduate students to ASLO meetings over the years. Many have gone on for careers in the aquatic sciences and allied fields. Other scientific societies have modeled their diversity efforts after ASLOMP. The key to success of this program is the corps of ASLO/AGU/TOS members who volunteer to serve as meeting-mentors to work with the students. Please consider sharing some of your time and energy with these outstanding students and volunteer to be a meeting-mentor. Meeting-mentors should have their terminal degree and be able to devote sufficient time to their charges. This means engaging your students several times (by Zoom or similar means) in the months prior to OSM2024, attending an in-person meeting with them on Sunday, Feb. 18, meeting with them once each day during the conference, and if possible, attending their poster or platform presentations. There will also be a virtual training session before the conference. Finally, mentors are expected to introduce their mentees to at least three other colleagues. Understand that this is different from the other general mentoring program sponsored by OSM.

If interested in volunteering, submit the form by January 12.
