Welcome to the Office for Diversity and Academic Success in the Sciences!

Our Mission

The Office for Diversity and Academic Success in the Sciences (ODASIS) is an academic support unit within the Division of Life Sciences at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. The goal of ODASIS is to increase the recruitment and academic success of underrepresented students, as well as educationally and economically disadvantaged students, who are interested in pursuing careers in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics professions. ODASIS intends to improve the percentage of underrepresented students entering the scientific fields by encouraging academic achievement in the sciences through unique and rigorous academic support. By cultivating the number, participation, and success of underrepresented and disadvantaged students who pursue scientific disciplines, ODASIS aims to minimize the achievement gap in professional education as well as create a highly qualified and diverse workforce.
