University Hosts Inaugural Program G.R.A.D.

The Office of Graduate Education will host the Inaugural Program G.R.A.D. (Graduate Recruitment for Achieving Diversity), Thursday through Sunday, Nov. 8-10.

Program G.R.A.D. is a recruitment weekend to identify underrepresented college juniors who are interested in attending graduate school and invite them to campus for a workshop and visit with programs. The purpose of the program is to increase diversity among the graduate student population at Saint Louis University. Program G.R.A.D. partnered with College Bound-St. Louis, Eastern Illinois University-McNair Scholars, and SLU's McNair and African American Male Initiative programs to recruit students.

Graduate Education received $500 for the second place submission for the Educational Testing Service and Midwestern Association of Graduate Schools Award for Excellence and Innovation in Graduate Education, to initiate Program G.R.A.D.

Higher purpose. Greater good.
