Graduate Students of Color Initiatives

Graduate Students of Color initiatives are opportunities for historically under-represented graduate students of color (Black, Native American and Hispanic) to gather, network, mentor, and focus on personal and professional development with each other, staff and faculty to build support networks through the graduate experience.   The events are developed for Graduate Students of Color and also open to any graduate student who may benefit.

Inter-University Graduate Students of Color Dinner Series
This series of professional development dinners, co-sponsored with the University of Pittsburgh, seeks to sustain graduate students of color at these institutions. In this highly interactive program, members of our university communities and the Pittsburgh community will provide advice, mentoring, and share their expertise and experiences through talks, panels, discussions, and exercises with graduate students. Students are encouraged to build broad support networks. Dinners will alternate between the Carnegie Mellon and University of Pittsburgh campuses.  The events are developed for Graduate Students of Color and also open to any graduate student who may benefit.
