The SOT Committee on Diversity Initiatives (CDI) is coordinating the Undergraduate Education Program for Sunday, March 27, 2022, to provide undergraduates with more information about toxicology, assist with graduate school and career planning, and encourage networking with graduate students and toxicologists.

Undergraduate students receive complimentary meeting registration by completing the Registration Form and sending it, with their student ID, to the SOT Registration Department. When an undergraduate registers, they can select the “Undergraduate Education Program” check box under the “Student and Postdoctoral Functions” section of the meeting Registration Form. Per the 2022 meeting policies, all undergraduates must provide proof of vaccination to attend this on-site program. The Undergraduate Education Program will not be available for remote participation.

The Undergraduate Education Program is included in the Undergraduate Diversity Program. View the Undergraduate Diversity Program schedule for the recipients of the Undergraduate Diversity Program Student Travel Award. SOT Undergraduate Research Award recipients also participate in the Undergraduate Education Program.
