Diversity Weekend 2014

This past weekend Penn GSE hosted 16 undergraduates from HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) and HSIs (Hispanic Serving Institutions) for its annual Diversity Weekend.

The effort to build and strengthen the pipeline to graduate education between minority serving institutions and PWIs (Predominantly White Institutions) began in 2004 with a roundtable discussion attended by senior administrators from the various institution types. The event was imagined by GSE faculty member Marybeth Gasman, orchestrated by the GSE Admissions Office, and funded through a grant by the Penn Provost's Office.

Now on our 10th year, the partnership between Dr. Gasman and Admissions continues. Over the course of the weekend, current students, faculty, and staff participated in sharing information that the undergraduates will need when considering and applying to graduate schools.

The GSE Admissions team would like to thank all those who played a role in making the weekend such a wonderful success and, to our 16 extraordinarily bright and talented guests, we hope to see you back in Philadelphia very soon! :)
