UC Berkeley Graduate Admissions Institute: Graduate Applications in the Post-Pandemic Context

November 18 @ 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Virtual,

The UC Berkeley Graduate Admissions Institute aims to provide information and resources to departments interested in diversifying their graduate student cohorts and promoting the values of equity, inclusion, justice and belonging across their academic programs. The Admissions Institute will host a series of virtual workshops on holistic graduate admissions to provide training and a forum for discussion on best practices for holistic and inclusive admissions at UC Berkeley and across the Academy more generally.

The Admissions Institute will encourage all graduate admissions committees, including faculty, staff, and student members, to be represented at these workshops. Department or unit Faculty Equity Advisors, Chief Diversity Officers, or equivalent will also be welcome to attend. The admissions institute provides two main workshops and two supplementary workshops.

Graduate Applications in the Post-Pandemic Context
November 18, 2021 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
COVID-19 has disrupted the experiences of undergraduates in their traditional preparation for graduate study. With particular attention to students from underrepresented backgrounds who may have not been able to engage in research experiences (such as summer REUs), this workshop will focus on working with programs in developing metrics to review applications within the context of the student’s access to resources and opportunities.
