Diversity Initiatives

CGLL Diversity & Inclusion Initiatives​

  • New Graduate Student of Color Welcome - Each fall we provide a special welcome event for students of color that includes words of welcome from our deans, a panel of continuing students, and networking. 
  • New LGBTQ+ Grad Student Welcome - Each fall we invite new LGBTQ+ students and allies to meet and mingle and get important information and resources for a successful graduate school journey. 
  • Global Niner Graduate Assistant: In addition to creating, supporting, and promoting programming to support the specific needs of international graduate students, the Global Niner GA works on initiatives aimed at bringing together diverse students for intercultural exchange and learning. 
  • International Graduate Student Career Workshop Series: Each semester, the Center for Graduate Life and Learning collaborates with the University Career Center for a series of career workshops that address specific challenges faced by international students in the job search process. Register for IGS workshops via our calendar.
  • How to Write a Diversity Statement for an Academic Job Application: This workshop is held every semester and helps participants learn how to prepare this increasingly common and critical component of the academic job application process.
