Tri-I Outreach Club (TORC)

Tri-I Outreach Club (TOrC) focuses on STEM outreach initiatives for K-12 through undergraduate students, primarily for underrepresented minorities and students from low-income families. Our mission is to offer mentorship, provide resources, spread awareness about research careers in STEM, and increase accessibility for students who lack resources in their local communities. We aim to inspire the next generation of scientists, curious thinkers, and problem solvers and provide them with the agency to set and achieve their goals. TorC consists of motivated graduate students, research scientists and postdoctoral volunteers from across the Tri-Institutional community (Weill Cornell Medicine, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and Rockefeller University) with a shared passion for science outreach. 

Previous TOrC partnerships have included:

  • NYC Department of Education
  • Stanley M. Isaacs Neighborhood Center
  • Big Red STEM Day
  • CUNY
  • Local NYC public schools

Current TOrC programs include:

  • Tri-I Mentorship Initiative (TIMI)

TIMI is a mentorship program that pairs current graduate students with undergraduate students interested in applying to graduate school. The goal of this program is to help mentees navigate the application process through one-on-one feedback and advice on application materials, tips on interviewing and personal testimonials as to what life as a graduate student is really like.
