A diverse population strengthens the whole community. We want to be a national leader in recruiting, retaining and encouraging the success of underrepresented minority students in graduate education.

What We’re Doing

We plan to recruit diverse students and raise the graduation rates of underrepresented minority students by:

  • Increasing the quality of interactions between prospective students and faculty and staff members, as well as providing more information about the benefits of an advanced degree.
  • Dedicating resources to training and professional development programs.
  • Training faculty to recruit and mentor students from diverse backgrounds.

Get Involved

Join the community. We offer activities and programs for connecting students, faculty and postdocs in both academic and social settings.
