Graduate Diversity Initiatives is a function of the Indiana University Graduate School dedicated to the recruitment, retention, and graduation of underrepresented graduate students. This includes creating an inclusive and multicultural educational landscape through the retention and recruitment of diverse students, especially those of domestic minority and low-income/first generation college backgrounds, who have been traditionally underrepresented in graduate education.
We work to recruit highly qualified students, and to prepare and retain these students through research opportunities and professional development activities at Indiana University. Enrolled graduate students are provided with programs and services to assist and support the pursuit of a successful graduate education. This includes academic, social, financial, referral, and informational support to help students with the graduate experience. The office promotes a climate of diversity, inclusion, engagement, and achievement, which are integral components of graduate education and beyond.
