Laboratory Resource Groups

Our hallmarks include sharing knowledge, strengthening professional networks, and assuring equity and inclusion for each member of the lab community. Our resource groups include Fermilab’s Committee of Champions, Fermilab chapters of national organizations, and a network of Laboratory Resource Groups.

Committee of Champions  

Committee of Champions

Appointed by the laboratory director, the Committee of Champions is tasked with evaluating the skills and talents of identified students and placing them in assignments that will use and continue to grow their skills.
