UChicagoGRAD collaborates with campus partners to support graduate students both personally and academically during their time on campus. Below are some of the campus offices who conduct programs throughout the academic year to ensure that underrepresented graduate students thrive at the University of Chicago:
- GRAD Diversity & Inclusion offers programming to help graduate students and postdoctoral students engage with diversity more critically in their scholarship.
- The Center for Identity + Inclusion (CI+I) is home to the Offices of Multicultural Student Affairs, LGBTQ Student Life, and Student Support Services to help support both underrepresented minority and LGBTQ+ identifying students, as well as students from immigrant, undocumented, first-generation, and lower income backgrounds.
- The Office of Multicultural Student Affairs (OMSA) works to create inclusive campus communities, promotes student advocacy, and strives to foster a university environment that supports the exploration of varied identities and intersections.
- The Office of the Provost works toward improving the recruitment and retention of minority faculty, postdoctoral scholars, and students. Initiatives include forums on campus climate and diversity, management of summer research programs, and implementation of the Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program.
