Students of color are currently attempting to navigate their path to graduate school in the midst of a global pandemic and at a time when race relations in our country are at the forefront of the news cycle. This climate has impacted aspiring graduate students in our community.

Should we be concerned? Absolutely.

In its effort to support diversity in graduate admissions, The GRE General Test invites you to join them for an honest conversation to discuss admission bias, the current climate for graduate education amongst students of color, and the triumphs and challenges that our community faces.

During this power-hour virtual event, a panel of graduate students and community advocates across various disciplines will join Northwestern’s Assistant Dean for Diversity and Inclusion and Graduate Diversity Officer to kick-off this much needed conversation.

When: Monday 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM EST
Where: Virtual Webcast
RSVP here: https://hbcuconnect.com/campaigns/2231/gre...


Reserve your spot today.
