Forum Information:

Walk-in only



The California Forums for Diversity in Graduate Education, planned by a consortium of public and private colleges and universities from throughout California, have been designed particularly to meet the needs of advanced undergraduates and master's candidates who belong to groups that are currently underrepresented in doctoral-level programs. The groups include low-income and first-generation college students and especially African Americans, American Indians, Chicanos/Latinos, Filipinos, Pacific Islanders, Asian American women, and Asian American men in the arts, humanities, and social and behavioral sciences.

Each California Forum for Diversity in Graduate Education will bring together approximately 1,000 pre-selected, high-achieving undergraduate and master's students. The students will explore graduate opportunities and resources by participating in numerous workshops conducted throughout the day. Universities and individual graduate programs offering academic master's and/or Ph.D. degrees are welcome to participate in the recruitment fairs that will take place concurrently with the other planned activities. Note that these events are for all disciplines except MBA programs, medicine, dentistry, optometry, chiropractic, pharmacy, veterinary science, and law, all of which have their own recruiting networks. You can get more information on the California Forums for Diversity in Graduate Education website.

The objective of Grad Info Day is to provide information for all of our students about their opportunities for higher education. In particular we hope to assist students who are from educationally and/or economically disadvantaged backgrounds with information about graduate opportunities.

Grad Info Day is hosted each year in the Fall so we hope you will be able to take advantage of this great opportunity to meet graduate recruiters and obtain valuable information about admissions policies and procedures, availability of financial aid, and other pertinent information. If you need additional information or have any questions, please call The Graduate Diversity Program office at (916) 278-3834 or e-mail:graddiversity@csus.edu.
