Commitment to Diversity

Rackham Graduate School and the UMGCP have a history and tradition of valuing the diversity of our students as an essential dimension of excellence in graduate education. The University of Michigan’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Strategic Plan emphasizes four domains in which our entire community are focusing our efforts:

1.      Recruitment
2.      High-Quality Academic and Professional Environment
3.      Retention
4.      Service, Partnership, and Collaboration

Rackham provides funding to graduate programs and sponsors numerous activities aimed at recruiting an outstanding and inclusive student body. We seek to provide intellectual, social, emotional, and financial support so that students from groups that are historically underrepresented in higher education or in their fields feel welcome and thrive in their studies.
