Building Diversity in Humanities Graduate Programs: The Challenges and Possibilites of Multi-Campus Programs

Those most familiar with humanities graduate recruitment know that the challenges to creating a diverse cohort of graduate students involve issues both local and national. Many disciplines do not have adequate mentoring infrastructures to provide a consistent flow of minority undergraduate students to doctoral programs. Only by building relationships among faculty can we start to change this.

Lecture Description

Since 2015, a small team at the University of Michigan, the University of New Mexico, Morehouse College, and Spelman College have worked to build cross-campus relationships as a means of increasing the diversity of perspectives in humanities graduate programs. The lecture outlines the history of the program, our core components, and specifics about our challenges.
