UChicagoGRAD Diversity & Inclusion leads efforts at UChicagoGRAD to create, sustain, and coordinate practices throughout
the University that support the academic, scholarly, and career development of graduate students and postdocs from historically
underrepresented and marginalized groups; and all graduate students and postdocs in incorporating diversity in their scholarly lives.

The University of Chicago’s diverse community provides the varying voices and perspectives essential to our mission of pursuing new knowledge. Our culture is enriched by the many different backgrounds of our students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Several offices and programs help foster this diversity at UChicago. Visit the University’s Diversity & Inclusion website to learn more about our commitment to diversity, including information for prospective and current students.

One-on-One Advising

All students and postdocs can sign up for one-on-one advising sessions to discuss issues, concerns, and experiences related to diversity as it affects their academic studies, career development, and personal wellbeing. This includes advising on diversity statements for faculty jobs, fellowships, and PhD program applications. Sign up for advising appointments in GRAD Gargoyle.
