My name is Liz Daniele. I work at the University of Rochester in NY and also am a PhD student at Syracuse University. I recently saw SU’s story featuring your work to support women and underrepresented minorities in STEM fields.
Here at the University of Rochester I am Assistant Director for Graduate Diversity in Arts, Sciences, and Engineering. My own professional background includes working with Upward Bound and McNair programs at the University of Rochester David T. Kearns Center for Leadership and Diversity.
I wanted to reach out to commend your work and share with you the attached flyer for University of Rochester’s grad visitation program.
This fall Arts, Sciences and Engineering and the School of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of Rochester will be hosting a two-day grad school visitation program designed for domestic undergraduate seniors who are low-income, first-generation college, or members of underrepresented minority groups interested in PhD programs at our University.
The application is now open for the 2017 Graduate Visitation Program. I’d appreciate whatever you are able to do to widely circulate the attached flyer to qualified students. The deadline to apply is July 14th and the program will be held in September.
Selected participants will have an opportunity to meet with faculty members in their field of interest, network with current graduate students, and learn about the University of Rochester. All participants will be provided with round trip travel, all meals, and housing with other program participants. Applications will be accepted from students interested in one of our PhD programs in Arts, Sciences and Engineering or School of Medicine and Dentistry.
The deadline for the 2017 Graduate Visitation Program is Friday, July 14, 2017. To be considered, apply online. Letters of recommendation should also be submitted online by recommenders.
Congratulations again on your Community Engagement Award and thanks for your ongoing commitment and dedication.
