The Office for Diversity in Graduate Education (ODGE) coordinates and leads the University’s initiatives in the recruitment, funding, retention and graduation of a diverse graduate and professional student body.  Additionally, ODGE works closely with The Graduate School and other units connected to diversity and multiculturalism.

ODGE services include recruitment and consultation on the application process, academic support and mentoring, and outreach to graduate programs to enhance diverse student experiences. Learn more...

We encourage prospective students to complete the "Get Connected" form so they can receive important information about their graduate program(s) of interest and the application process.
