How CUNY Increased Diversity in their Graduate Programs

How can we increase under-represented demographics in our graduate programs?

Reported by The Chronicle of Higher Education, while non-white students are currently underrepresented in graduate school, receiving only 15% of doctorates while making up 30% of the population, City University of New York has created a Pipeline Fellows Program largely designed to better educate their undergraduate students about their opportunities post-graduation, including matching undergrads with a graduate fellow.

The takeaway? How do we make sure we’re educating our undergraduates about their potential paths after graduation, including graduate school?

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
