Supporting Underrepresented Students in the Academy

This panel discussion will be held at 3 p.m. Friday, Sept. 6 in Memorial Union North 201C.

The Graduate Scholars of Excellence will host a panel discussion aimed at addressing ways in which MU faculty and staff can share information about new and existing programs in place to support underrepresented students at various stages of the graduate experience.

This discussion will offer a targeted approach to identifying areas for growth in order to increase the number of underrepresented students who are retained and go on to complete their academic programs at a high success rate.
