The Center for the Study of Diversity in Science, Technology, and Medicine was founded at MIT in June 2000 by a generous grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.  Professor Evelynn M. Hammonds envisioned a center that would pursue two primary goals.  Scholars at the CSD examine both the impact of diversity on the theory and practice of science, medicine, and technology, and the contributions of racial and ethnic minorities to those fields.
