Register for the Sloan Foundation Fundamentals of Equity in Graduate Admissions

Ohio State is one of 10 universities selected to receive a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to advance systemic change in doctoral STEM education. With Sloan Foundation support, Ohio State will establish a Sloan Center for Systemic Change (SCSC). Building on the university’s long-term efforts and investments to diversify STEM education, Ohio State will seek to significantly enhance pipelines for underrepresented graduate students, with the aspiration to attract more students to STEM graduate programs while enhancing enrollment and graduation rates.

In addition to the grant award, Sloan is supporting each institution’s participation in the Equity in Graduate Education Consortium (EGE), a networked improvement community that equips participants with research, tools and change management strategies to achieve systemic change. The consortium is presenting an online workshop that will cover Fundamentals of Equity in Graduate Admissions. Grounded in compelling research, this workshop fosters insightful reflection, healthy dialogue and the development of concrete action steps to advance equity and inclusion within your programs.

This workshop is designed to be accessible and relevant to a broad audience across diverse academic disciplines. Whether you are an admissions officer, faculty member, or graduate student, this program offers valuable insights and actionable tools to contribute to a more equitable and inclusive graduate education experience.
