IME focuses on the retention and the successful graduation of our racially/ethnically diverse graduate students through creating a CommUNITY of Excellence.

How we build CommUNITY:

  1.  ENGAGE: Building a cohesive and supportive network through programming opportunities & peer mentoring
  2. EMPOWER: Bringing together student-led, affinity groups in a safe space for support & encouragement (see EVENTS for list of opportunities to engage)
    • Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) Grads
    • Brotherhood of Success (BOS)
    • La Familia
    • Sisterhood of Empowerment in Academe (SEA)
  3. EQUIP: Providing resources that impact retention and time to degree

We welcome and encourage your involvement!
