|Achieving Excellence through Diversity:
Equity, Access & Diversity Issues in Graduate & Professional Education
Tuesday, April 5, 2016 | 10:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. | Coffman Memorial Union
We know that a diverse student body enriches graduate education by providing a multiplicity of views and perspectives that enhance research, teaching, and the development of new knowledge. A diverse mix of students facilitates opportunities to learn from, and promotes respect for, others who represent the broad range of backgrounds, cultures and experiences prevalent in contemporary society.
But, are we attracting and retaining the diverse mix of graduate and professional students we desire?
We invite you to take part in a series of challenging conversations as we address these questions and more at the 2016 Graduate and Professional Education Assembly. Leading diversity advocates, scholars and practitioners from other institutions, as well as from the UofM, will help frame our discussion. Learn more & register.
