On August 1, 2009 it was discovered that the Minority Opportunities in Research (MORE) Program Office, located in the fifth floor of the Physical Science building, was burglarized and a number of computers were stolen. Two computers stored confidential information containing first and last names, social security numbers, and addresses of former and prospective MORE participants. Every effort is being made to contact all persons possibly included in the computer files.
MORE is funded by grants from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) of the National Institutes of Health, and by the National Science Foundation (NSF). These national agencies require information in progress reports that can include social security numbers.
