The California Forum for Diversity in Graduate Education

This Forum is designed to meet the needs of advanced undergraduates and master's candidates who belong to groups that are currently underrepresented in doctoral-level programs. The groups include African Americans, American Indians, Chicanos/Latinos, Filipinos, Pacific Islanders, Asian Americans in the arts, humanities, and social and behavioral sciences.

The Forum is usually an all day program (8:00AM - 5:00PM). You will have the opportunity to attend a variety of workshops and panel sessions, as well as meet representatives from the nation's leading graduate schools offering masters and doctoral degrees in a wide range of disciplines.
