Recent News / Activities:

-June '19: There will be a Diversity related session at this years RHIC Annual Users Meeting  Stay tuned for more details.
-Oct. '18 : As discussed at our UEC meeting in October 2018, the entire UEC would like to reaffirm our strong recognition that the advances which RHIC has ushered in all areas including theory, experiment, accelerator physics and beyond, have had many important contributions from women and other minorities. We strongly believe that continuing to strive for a more diverse User and overall scientific community in relativistic heavy ion physics is important and we remain committed as a UEC to this goal.
