CSMGEP: Committee on the Status of Minority Groups in the Economics Profession
About the Committee
CSMGEP was established by the American Economic Association (AEA) in 1968 to increase the representation of minorities in the economics profession, primarily by broadening opportunities for the training of underrepresented minorities. CSMGEP, which is comprised of economists from all areas of the profession, also works to ensure that issues related to the representation of minorities are considered in the work of the AEA, and engages in other efforts to promote the advancement of minorities in the economics profession.
Diversifying Economic Quality: A Wiki for Instructors and Departments
As part of the American Economic Association's commitment to advancing diversity in the profession, CSMGEP now hosts a new online resource for economics faculty. Diversifying Economic Quality: A Wiki for Instructors and Departments (Div.E.Q.) promotes best teaching practices in economics, particularly practices that encourage members of underrepresented groups to continue their study of economics. Created by Amanda Bayer of Swarthmore College, Div.E.Q. presents useful information in an efficient manner, digesting the relevant research and identifying recommendations with empirical support, and offers a place where economists can share their research and learn from the collected wisdom of others.

American Economic Association (AEA) Summer Training Program and the AEA Minority Scholarship Summer 2013
Hosted by the Department of Economics and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Center for Health Policy at the University of New Mexico
Starting in the summer of 2012, the University of New Mexico is hosting the American Economic Association’s Summer Training and Minority Scholarship Program. The six-week program will be held in June and July on the Albuquerque UNM campus.
The American Economic Association is committed to addressing the lack of diversity in the profession. Thus, the AEA Committee on the Status of Minority Groups in the Economics Profession (CSMGEP) oversees and contributes its talents to the Summer Training Program. Minority Scholarships are intended to increase the number of African-American, Latino, and Native Americans with doctorates in Economics.
The Summer Training Program is designed to provide undergraduate students with a program of study and research opportunities that prepare them with a better understanding of what the study of Economics entails at the doctoral level and career options for doctoral graduates. The program provides courses in economic theory, mathematics, and econometrics as well as research seminars intended to acquaint students with key economic concepts and issues. The AEA Summer Training Program is open to all qualified students, regardless of race, ethnicity, or gender. The Minority Fellowships are open to qualified U.S. citizens and permanent residents, with preference for those who are members of historically disadvantaged racial or ethnic minority groups and advance the diversity of the Economics profession.
